Reunions

 

We are having a fantastic response to Regiments and Associations having their reunions and requiring the RAA reunion pack which consists of:

Wristbands,Car stickers, Beer mats, RAA/RACF leaflets.

Please may we ask that if you require a reunion pack that you advertise this reunion through our website www.theraa.co.uk and the Gunner magazine.  This is a free service and it will only require you to draft the details of the reunions i.e. Contact name, Tel Number, Reunion details & date with venue of where it is to be held.  This can then be emailed to thegunner@artycen.ra.mod.uk    They need 3-4 months’ notice before the reunion takes place and no later than the 15th of each month for the next addition.  

If there is any reason that you cannot advertise in the Gunner  then please contact:

Elly on 01980 84597Mon/Tues/Thur/Fri mornings between 8:30-12:30.
