Who's who?  
Members' responses to the appeal in the last Newsletter for help for Les Palmer in fund raising was, to say the least, very disappointing; there were no offers of help. The long serving and dedicated KAHP Committee was plunged into gloom by this news. The chances of raising funds for the memorial must be very slim indeed if 350 of those who were intimately involved with the object of the memorial show no interest whatever in supporting the project.

Les isn't going to ask you to stand on a street corner rattling a tin, or to do any 'doorstepping'. He needs help in researching potential donors and eventually in dealing with mail. Please contact Les who will explain the help he needs; it's not onerous, just vital. Please call him on 01784 460418 or approach him at the next Meeting. He promises to be gentle.

These handsome ties in red or blue with the Association logo diagonally across the blade are available for £7.50.

You can buy them from Harry Fraser-Mitchell at meetings or by post (50p) from him at
16 Guernsey Drive, Fleet, Hampshire, GU51 2TG; cheques payable to The Hawker Association, please. Telephone him first on 01252 626996 to check availability.
