Dear fellow NAFAS member,

Over the last couple of weeks, the Trustees have read, made notes and thought through all the members feedback on the future of Osborne House. Yesterday, March 3rd 2021, the Board of Trustees met at a specially convened virtual meeting to vote on whether to sell or retain Osborne House.

All Trustees were in attendance, the vote was unanimous to sell, there were no votes against, and no one abstained.

As you would imagine it was a difficult and emotional moment and I think we all realised the brevity and weight of the moment. We talked before the vote, revisited again the situation and only when we were all sure in our own minds that we were ready, the vote was taken. Interestingly all areas had suggested a sell option as well.

We have consulted with three London based commercial property agents and are now seeking to consult with one more agent and obtaining three quotes for legal representation.

We will keep you up to date, stage by stage.

Yours sincerely

Katherine Kear National Chairman

AREA NEWSLETTER "SPOTLIGHT EAST" SPRING 2021

HAS BEEN PUBLISHED.               

Hello Everyone,

Thank you all so much for your contributions to the latest edition of Spotlight East, which went online earlier in the week.  Please encourage your friends and  club members to read it, (and the whole website) so that we get lots of “hits”.  Perhaps you know of others who could do something for the Summer edition – give them a little nudge!  I want to include as many members as possible, but I don’t find always find it easy to get in touch with people I don’t know. I didn’t get the opportunity to build up an address book before lockdown and often don’t have phone numbers for people I would like to talk too.  I’ve been quite successful using social media, and making contact through the clubs; but there are a number of emails that have obviously gone into the spam box and not everyone responds to an unsolicited approach on Messenger.  So this is an area in which you could really help me.

Enjoy Spring as it unfolds, and do keep in touch.

Lindi. (Editor of Newsletter "Spotlight East").  Email: newsletter.nafaseast@gmail.com
