Marine Reserves now!




Marine Reserves now!

You may be one of the 100,000 people who signed up for "Marine Reserves Now!" on our website, at public events and visitor centres in 2008. You could have been at one of the UK's conservation-aware aquaria when you signed; or a diver reached through our joint campaign with the British Sub Aqua Club; or you may be receiving this message as a subscriber to the MCS E-News service.

Your help is needed once more! Please act now: visit and send a NEW message asking your MP to call for marine reserves and other important amendments in the Marine Bill (which is being debated in Parliament right now!).

What these votes have achieved:

2009 Annual General Meeting

Dear Club Member,

The club AGM will be held on Monday 26 January at 8pm in the Conservative Club. There will be no baths on that night.

I attach the Agenda for the evening and the minutes from the last AGM can be found under  Committee Minutes on the Club Menu.  If you would like to stand for election please obtain a nomination from two paid up members of the club. All the club positions are available for re-election. Proposals for election must be received by me no later than noon on the 25 January. If a position is contested a ballot will be held on the night of the AGM.

Happy Christmas

Happy Christmas and New Year to all, didn't manage to see everyone at the last meeting, lets hope 2009 is a good year for the club.
Looking forward to getting in the water ASAP with you all.
