Army Apprentices National Association 2022 Annual Reunion

Annual Reunion and Service
Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4th September 2022

It is anticipated that it will be a similar format to previous years.

A meeting of the committee on Saturday, followed by a social gathering and meal, in the evening at:

The Derby Mickleover Hotel, Etwall Road, Mickleover. DE3 0XX, for Sat 3rd July.

To obtain the discounted rate, phone 01332 521234 and ask for Neile, quoting ‘Johnny McGahan’

The preferential rates are:

Single B&B £89 (it will be a double room)

Double B&B £99

Please do not try and book before Sat 2nd July. We have booked 10 rooms at this reduced rate, so it will be first come, first served. Please be patient when phoning, they do take their time to answer.

We do need at least 20 people to attend to get the use of a private dining room.

Attached, I have reproduced the menu for the Saturday evening. These are individually priced and obviously additional to the B&B charge.

I have placed a code in front of each course, to make life a little easier, as choices have to be emailed to Johnny by 24th July ([email protected]).

It will be appreciated, if when you book the hotel, you just ping me an email to confirm it’s done.

On the Sunday we will assemble at our memorial in the National Memorial Arboretum Alrewas for a service.

Best regards
