Monday, July 12 2021: East Sussex Annual Gathering 2022
The postponed 2020 Gathering in East Sussex has been, as previously advised, rearranged for the weekend of the 22–24 April 2022 with the venue still being The Royal Victoria Hotel at St. Leonards, Hastings. We are now working on firming up arrangements. The 2020 event was over subscribed however, we are aware that there are members who would like a place if they become available. Anyone who was allocated a place in 2020 will have this carried forward to 2022 (a new booking form will need to be submitted, but the place will be assured – COVID-19 regulations permitting). It is likely that a few places may become available as some of those who were allocated a place may decide, for various reasons, not to attend next year. We are working on this to try and get an idea of the numbers and I propose that bookings will reopen on 1 September 2021 (please do not send in bookings before that date) and we will then allocate any available places. Further information will be provided nearer the time here. Clive Gee East Sussex Annual Gathering co-ordinator

The Index of the Society's magazines is now available on this site. So if you want to know where to look for anything written about a particular topic this is where to search for it.
Friday, August 14 2020:
You will be pleased to know that the Malcolm Society Committee, when planning its 25th anniversary celebrations for 2019, decided to publish (subject to availability of copyright), as part of its programme of “Next 25 years” activities, a book of all Saville-related newspaper and magazine articles, as well as his short stories (but excluding The Flower Show Hat, which has previously been published by the Society).
This is a big task, as Saville wrote extensively in such magazines as My Garden, contributed short pieces to many newspapers and journals, and was commissioned to write some ‘one-off’ pieces (such as the Liverpool Cathedral Coronation Souvenir discussed by Kim Spencer in a recent Acksherley! and thought by many to not exist!).
So – if you have any snippets of such journalism or think you know where they can be found, please let the Society know by emailing us here.
