THREE major events for the Association of Wrens Centenary


Definition of Scuttlebutt for those unfamiliar with the word – Naval Slang for gossip - so let’s get gossiping and make 2020 another special year for former Wrens and serving ladies

Saturday 21st March – The Fleet Air Arm Museum, Yeovilton - reception on the flight deck followed by a 3 course dinner under the wings of Concorde

Wednesday 10th June – The WRNS Garden at the National Memorial Arboretum – a service in the garden and an unveiling of a commemorative plaque followed by a reception/buffet lunch in the new NMA events centre.

Friday 2nd to Monday 5th October - In Edinburgh – From formal to informal events across the w/e and an AOW meeting on the Saturday afternoon.  It is intended to have an action packed weekend which I am sure will be enormous fun.
