The TCC UK and Ireland held our autumn meeting at Doggett’s Coat & Badge, with 27 members and guests in attendance. We were pleased to be able to welcome first time attendees, new TCC members, and long-time devotees, who traveled from the UK, Ireland, Cyprus, Canada, and Denmark.
Certificates were presented to Richard Bakos for achieving travel to 100 countries, and a very belated presentation to Peter Bancroft for his achievement of reaching 150 countries.
Luke Lowsley-Williams, great nephew of Colin McCorquodale gave a short talk about work and travel as a young adult, giving insight into the next generation of TCC members. We also had general travel discussions, comments and questions from all members who wished to speak.
Our pub quiz returned, with the usual mix of travel themes. Congratulations to the winners, The Sociables, Team members: David Langan, Per Besson, Richard Elliott, Steve Owad-Jones and Dianne Owad-Jones.
The next TCC UK and Ireland Chapter meeting will be in April or May 2024, with the date to be announced in due course. We hope to see you there.
