On Monday,March 23, Balham Brothers were delighted to enrol John Neligan as a Brother of the Circle. Two visiting brothers, Roderick O’Connor and Kevin Mallett, from Sutton, Mid-Surrey Circle also attended our Circle Meeting and joined us for dinner.
John, who is a parishioner of St Thomas a Becket Church in Wandsworth, is pictured here with President Terry and Membership Officer Charles. President Terry warmly welcomed John and, as is the tradition, presented him with a Balham Circle tie.
The Circle Meeting was followed by a most convivial dinner in the informal style that Balham Brothers have grown accustomed to and which it seems is also appreciated by our visitors. With a small group, it’s possible to sit around a single table and everyone can share the lively conversation and jokes, old and new!! TGB
