Club Members are invited to a presentation by the Border Force, plus a chance to meet our local Coastguard Team.
“Went to the Border Force agency presentation at North Fambridge Yacht club this afternoon. About 30 – 40 people attended. Really good interesting and entertaining presentation. Will definitely come to the one at the club as different audiences have different views on this topic.”

The Border Force Team will deliver their presentation and will also remain afterwards to talk to members of the audience. Plus, as an extra bonus, members of the Local Coastguardare also coming along and they will also be available should you like to chat with them.
The presentation will start at 8.00pm on Friday 22 March. As usual the bar will be open. Plus, there will be nibbles on each of the tables for all to enjoy. Aim to arrive at 7.30pm to get a good seat.
Please confirm you would like to attend – please email firstname.lastname@example.org and simply say ‘Border Force Your name + number of others/guests’ (in your party). We can then ensure priority for our members. An invitation will then go out nearer the time to local clubs so their members may attend.
