BRS – New Members Evening
By Margaret Sheard
Café George in Girne has become a favourite meeting point for expats, and was the ideal location for the BRS Committee to welcome new members who have joined in the past 12 months.
Over 70 members were welcomed by BRS Acting chair, Nicky Montgomery, and Acting Deputy Chair, Nigel Holman.
Talking to new members, the key deciding factors in joining (and re-joining!) are the improved communications system, meaning that important information is now widely available, and the ever popular Discount List which now not only includes those great hospital discounts, but also an ophthalmic surgeon, two dentists, and a wide range of other businesses from hairdressers to restaurants to building contractors.
The overwhelming feeling on the night was that the BRS had a new accessible image, “The BRS committee are friendly, approachable people,” said Adrianne Friend.
New Member Claire Lambie said, “The BRS is a wonderful way to get to know a wide spectrum of people,” and her husband Pete added, “It should be renamed the British Residents Community”.
The new edition of the Discount List will be available for members to pick up at the AGM on Saturday April 12th at the Dome Hotel in Girne, registration and coffee from 10am, AGM at 11am.
