2017 AGM and Reunion, 22nd - 24th September


This year’s AGM and Reunion was, as expected, well attended with approximately 50 members plus partners and wives in attendance. This was the penultimate AGM and Reunion and the last to be held at Chatham. Many members arrived on the Friday night and ate together informally in the restaurant at the King Charles Hotel. Many also took full advantage of reduced entrance to the Historic Dokyard, Chatham to spend the Saturday viewing the exhibits. In the afternoon we had a reception on board HMS Gannet. A photograph of those in attendance can be seen below (click for enlarged version).












The AGM took place in the evening and the Reunion Dinner took place afterwards where we were also entertained by professional singer Amanda Parsons.


There was much talk about the final reunion in 2018 which promises to be a big event (see below).


2018 - The Final AGM and Reunion


The last formal Mercury Reunion will take place at the Royal Beach Hotel, Southsea on 21-23 September 2018. Activities will focus on organised events in Hamble. Further details will be posted here when available.
