    Ken's funeral will be on Wednesday February 21st at 2pm at Wessex Vale Crematorium, Bubb Lane, Hedgend, Southampton SO30 2HL. Ken was a tremendous character, well loved and respected in the SBA and we look forward to a service that will both celebrate his life and say a dignified farewell.  It will be taken by Mark Rudall and all are welcome - and SBA members are asked to pass the word around.

    Sad news, Ken Challice died on Monday 22nd January.  The  funeral details will be circulated when they're available.

    Ken was a tremendous character full of great stories, a very accomplished engineer and an extremely helpful boiler inspector. He was also a real encourager to everyone who knew him. His that wonderful Welsh gruffness that he somehow blended with a really warm friendliness will be sadly missed.

    All committee members and officers (save for our Vice Presidents) are obliged to stand down at each AGM and, if they wish to stand again and are allowed by the Constitution to do so, they must be voted in at the AGM. Nominations for a place on the SBA committee are open to all members.

    For the AGM taking in place on 16 March 2024, John Jewsbury will be standing down as Chairman and will not stand for re-election as he will have served 3 years as Chairman. Nominations to be the next Chair person are invited. At present, there is one nominee for the role – Dot Bullough. In addition, Gillie Slater, our Hon. Secretary has confirmed that she will not be standing again in 2024 and so the role of Hon. Secretary will be vacant. Again, nominations are invited.

    For the regular committee members, John Winn and Andy Hopper will not be standing again in 2024 and there is a real need for additional committee members - nominations are invited.

    For more information about any of these roles or to find out more about nomination, please contact Gillie Slater – or 01275 331074
