Welcome to our websiteThe Retired Professional Engineers' Club (Bristol) is intended to further the aims and interests of engineers by arranging regular events for retired professional engineers. Such events will have a social aspect so as to encourage members and their partners to all events. Guests will be made most welcome.
This page will contain notes of changes to the website and any information that the club management wish to publish. As the whole site ahas been changed and every file used checked and revised into a new form, this page will now let you know what is available and how you can use it. Access to the various parts is achieved by using items displayed in the adjacent left hand tabular column which remains there even when different pages are viewed. The following is an explanation of each item available in that column.
Home Page Takes you to this page - useful while you ponder your next move!
Programme of Events Takes you to a page that gives details of the next event in the club which is usually updated about a fortnight before the event. A list of events remaining in the club year follows this.
