Dear Old Georgians

Hello everyone, hope you are all well, here is our Summer 2022 update.

We now have a date for the 2023 Dinner and Golf Tournament, the details can be found below.

We will also be holding a quiz later this year. Details are also below.

2023 AGM & Annual Dinner

We are pleased to announce the date for the 2023 AGM & Annual Dinner. After many requests for the occasional change to the traditional date, the 2023 event will be held on SATURDAY 6TH MAY.

The Hesketh Golf Club are pleased to host us once again and their excellent support of the OGA through COVID and the 2022 event means we will have a fantastic night. Graham Cox, our new Chairman, will preside over the evening.
Please book you place now by emailing Jonathan Elliott (
jonelliott61@hotmail.com) with your name, the number of tickets required and the names in your party if you have them available.

While this event is 11 months away, we anticipate a good take up so the earlier you reserve your place the better.

Payment can be made at any time, with final payment required by April 26
th 2023. Menu choices will be advertised closer to the event.

More details can be found on the
OGA Calendar page page.

2023 Golf Tournament

This will take place on Friday 5th May 2023 at the Hesketh Golf Club.

Please contact the event organiser, Chris Stitson (
stitson.chris@gmail.com), to book your place.

Quiz Night

The night is definitely happening!

The date is set for Friday 21st October at S&B Sports & Social Club.
Excellent bar food can be ordered from 6 until 7:30 and the quiz begins at 8.

Tickets are £5 per person and should be purchased in advance. Please contact Jon Elliott asap ((jonelliott61@hotmail.com) to secure your places.

Teams of up to 6 people can be entered (please note, that isn't 6 plus 3 that don't really want to take part!). If you are fewer than 6, then you can join another 'fewer than' on the night if you wish to make up a 6.

Please put this date into your diary and register soon so that we can ensure we have a great night out!

The Red Rose 2022

The annual magazine is now available!

You can find it by following this link.

The digital copy doesn't yet have the front cover as the printers create this and that will delay its release, so we have decided to send it without.

This is the full version, in colour and provides you with the best experience of the annual publication.
To manage cost, we have produced a cut down version of 44 pages and it is in black and white. This has been posted out to those who chose this option, at the end of January.

We hope you enjoy the edition and if it encourages you to write an article for us next year, please contact Jon Elliott (jonelliott61@hotmail.com).

Mike Harrop has written about life after the RAF. Matt Greenhalgh wrote a couple of years ago about Army life. If we have any other armed forces or public service experience that could compliment this next year, please get in touch.

The most difficult section to write and manage is the Obituary section. I aim to ensure I include everyone that I am told of, but I do rely on contributions for the personal detail. 

If any of these seem a bit short, there is nothing I can do at this time. If you know of other OGAs not included, or any interesting information about those that are, please send it in to me.
