NEW QARNNS ASSOCIATION WEBSITE!
Welcome to the Q.A.R.N.N.S Association website.
The Association is a registered charity and encompasses all serving personnel, Reserves and retired members of the Q.A.R.N.N.S., as well as V.A.D’s (R.N.)
Initially formed in 1970, there were separate Ratings’ and Officers’ Associations, but in 2007 they amalgamated, and we now have over 790 members.
There is a joining fee of £5 and an annual subscription of £5 payable each June. The money helps to cover the cost of the twice yearly newsletters, and also donations to nominated charities.
Details of how to join are provided by Mrs Jan Tocher, Membership Secretary. Application forms can be obtained from this website, or by writing to her at the address given.
We have a reunion and Annual General Meeting, now usually held in September at selected venues across the country. Our most recent was held on 27th September 2008 at The National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire. This is home to the Armed Forces Memorial, a stunning structure, unveiled in October 2007, which is engraved with the names of all those service personnel who have died whilst on duty or from acts of terrorism since the second world war. There are also several other categories of memorial both military and civil within the extensive grounds. We took the opportunity to visit the site dedicated to the Q.A.R.N.N.S. We hope to improve the appearance and profile of the plot and monitor progress. Captain Helen Allkins, Matron in Chief will be meeting with the authorities at the Arboretum to explore ways of going forward with this.You will find some photographs on this website of the current condition of our plot.
There are Regional Branches of varying sizes, to which members may belong having joined the main Association. These hold a number of social activities/meetings throughout the year.
Having information about the Association on the Q.A.R.N.N.S’ web site is a new and exciting development, which we hope will encourage new members and invigorate old ones!
