ROYAL ENGINEERS ASSOCIATION
PCS BRANCH REUNION – 17 MARCH 2018
With help from Paul Morris and after much research, telephone calls and visits to various hotels close to the National Memorial Arboretum, the Moor Hall Hotel and Spa in Sutton Coldfield has been selected for our 2018 Reunion on Saturday 17 March.
The address of the hotel is: Moor Hall Drive, Sutton Coldfield B75 6LN and their website is http://www.moorhallhotel.co.uk which gives full details of facilities and transport links, etc.
Use of the Spa has also been agreed as part of our package, should you wish to take advantage of the facility, so remember to pack your cosi!
Bookings should be made on 01213 342 301. Please make the reservation staff aware that you are there for the Royal Engineers Reunion. Once reservations have been made with the hotel, please ensure you inform both the Secretary (email@example.com) and myself (firstname.lastname@example.org) giving the full names of all those in your party along with any seating preferences. For clarity, all payments should be made to the hotel, not the Branch Treasurer. The hotel will not require a deposit; however they will require a credit/debit card number when booking. Payment will be taken on check-out from the hotel.

The National Memorial Arboretum
The Arboretum is 14 miles away (20 mins by car) and well worth a visit (www.thenma.org.uk).
It was agreed at the last AGM that a memorial tree would be planted within the Arboretum to commemorate PCS during WW1. The committee is looking at the possibility of organising some kind of a tree planting ceremony over the Reunion weekend for those able to attend.
