31 Mar 07


122-124 Westminster Bridge Road, London, SE1 7RW.
(40 yards NW of Lambeth North tube - Bakerloo Line).

1px-trans.gif, 43 bytesI write to confirm that, as previously indicated, this year's AGM has
been booked and confirmed at the above watering hole for Sat 31 Mar 07. Doors
will be open from 1700-2300 hrs and food will be available from the bar
restaurant from 1830 hrs. Standard fodder will include extract of Limpopo
juice together with dingleberry windfalls. For our lady guests we will also
endeavour to have "crayfish and rocket" on the menu - who says we haven't
changed much since the distant days of "Dirty Dicks" in Liverpool Street.

1px-trans.gif, 43 bytesAs indicated, this will be our "50th Anniversary" of the JSL AGM. Early
archive records show the first one was held on 28 Dec 57 in London where it
has been held annually ever since. I attach a calling notice reply of the
day. Numbers attending over the years have varied from almost single figures
to just over 50 in 2004. To celebrate the occasion I am hoping we can manage
a maximum turn-out this year. To this end and as a bit of bait I enclose
a list of shareholders who have earlier indicated their interest in attending.

1px-trans.gif, 43 bytesLast years (06) AGM went extremely well with a lively gathering which
numbered just short of 50. President Ken was with us and, in fine fettle,
delivered the annual address. All agenda items were covered and needless
to say there were few abstainers in the assembled company. The "Golden Share"
this year was, in fact, presented to Ken in recognition of his long-standing
stint as president of our illustrious Order.

1px-trans.gif, 43 bytesThe August visit to Jever was an unqualified success. Excellent
organisation by Mick Ryan and his contacts at the Jever end, coupled with very
generous hospitality from our hosts made for a most enjoyable sortie. Perhaps
one that we could repeat in the not too distant future. Mick has produced
a full visit report with photographic coverage on the website and for those
of us "not yet in the 21st century" he attaches to this letter a brief resume
of the visit. Our grateful thanks to all involved in making it such a success.

1px-trans.gif, 43 bytesNext the Ladies Dinner Night in the RAF Club; we have had to go for Sat
3 Nov 07. Mick will be masterminding this event and will be in contact with
all shareholders in the near future with full details. Response to my initial
sounding on attendance has been most encouraging so it should prove to be an
excellent night in very fitting surroundings with superb company. Think about

1px-trans.gif, 43 bytesAs always the "sad to relate" news is indeed very sad. News has filtered
through that we have lost the following colleagues in the past year: Bush Barrey
(May 06) aged 86, Geoff Couch (Aug 06), Bruno Albers (Aug06) and finally, only
a week ago and very suddenly, Eddie McCullagh.

1px-trans.gif, 43 bytesFinally, may I wish you and yours a belated "Happy New Year". We look
forward to seeing you at Steaming Time, 1700 hrs onwards. For those not able
to join us this year the Saturday before Easter in 08 will be 22 Mar 08 -
[Ooops!   The Government has changed the date for Easter next year - typical!
The true date is Sat 15Mar08!]
hopefully, on present plans,at the same venue. Hope to see you there. TBC.

P.S. Please complete the attached form and return it as soon as is convenient
1px-trans.gif, 43 bytesthank you.

P.P.S. Our thanks to Mick Ryan for covering our photocopying and postage
1px-trans.gif, 43 bytesrequirements.


Dear President,

1px-trans.gif, 43 bytesReceipt is acknowledged of your invitation to attend
the U.K. board meeting of the Jever Steam Laundry at "Dirty Dicks"
on the 28th December, 1957, but owing to commitments with the
oversea branch it will not be possible to attend.

2.     It is hoped the business will be conducted in the best
Jever traditions, and I hope it will be my pleasure to attend
the next U.K. board meeting and bring you all up to date on the
parent company's doings.

1px-trans.gif, 43 bytesI have the honour to be, Sir,

Dear Shareholder,

Change of Venue for 2007 50th Anniversary AGM
Regret 'Serjeants' has closed without notice. JSL AGM is now relocated to:

'The Horse', 122-124 Westminster Bridge Road London SE1 7RW (40 yards NW of Lambeth North tube - Bakerloo Line).   See map below. Date and times remain unchanged.   Please alert fellow shareholders. It gives us much larger room, at street level for those with mobility problems, same cook and manageress as at 'Serjeants', basically a pub but becoming a good French Restaurant thanks to the good food. A limited amount of Jever Pils will be on sale. If you have not already sent back your return please do so - to help with planning.
