Hockley Residents Association Coach Trips

B

y the time you read this the coach trip to Broughton Castle & Sulgrave Manor, the last trip to be organised by Brian O’Shea, would have taken place. After many years of organising the Hockley Residents Association (HRA) Coach Trips, Brian is standing down from this task. I am sure that there are hundreds of our residents that would like to join me to thank Brian for his tireless efforts in organising around six trips a year around Britain, including short stay holidays in nice hotels. If there is anyone that would like to take over from Brian to continue this worthwhile job for all our residents, please get in touch with the HRA via the website at: hockleyresidents.co.uk/contacts.htm
