The 2016 AGM and Reunion was held at the Royal Beach Hotel, Southsea over the weekend
of the 23rd-24th September 2016. The event was very well attended (one of the largest)
with over 70 (including wives/partners) attending.
Bearing in mind the decision to wind the association up in 2018, we expect the final
two reunions, including this 2017 event, to be memorable and that they will be heavily
subscribed. This will be the last reunion to be held in Chatham, home of HMS Gannet
and our old dormitory ship. The hotel is the King Charles Hotel. Download the Booking
Form here. Timings are as follows:
1500 - 1630 Afternoon tea on board HMS Gannet*. This will be a private function (no
1800 - 1900 AGM at King Charles Hotel.
* There is no charge or dockyard entrance fee for members (and one guest) attending
the 1500 event on Gannet. For those wishing to visit the dockyard earlier in the
day, a much reduced rate of £5-00 for members has been negotiated. You need to have
booked for the AGM and Reunion to take advantage of this (we need to provide names
to the dockyard).
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.
