REA Gibraltar Branch Weekend


The Royal Engineers Association Gibraltar Weekend will be held in Gibraltar between Friday 21 and Sunday 23 April 17.  The event will be organised by the members of the Gibraltar REA Branch; please note that this is not a Corps or REA HQ sponsored event.

We have considered the feedback received from previous Gibraltar Weekends, and have developed this year's event accordingly, and are happy to attach the Administrative Instruction for our 2017 event.  You will note that the weekend activities will be held over the period Friday 21 to Sunday 23 April 2017.  We will also offer discrete, stand-alone tours on Monday 24 April, for those who wish to attend.  We have worked hard to ensure that costs for this year's event are kept to a minimum, and have secured some sponsorship from local companies to offset the cost of the Weekend.  Payment details are shown in the attached document and we would respectfully request that all guests ensure payment in full is made before the event (by post), or during the Meet n Greet function, in accordance with the instructions in the Admin Instructions document.

There has already been a significant level of interest for this year's event and we are hoping to improve on last year's attendance figures of circa 140. In order to finalise our preparations, we would be grateful for your earliest confirmation of attendance, ideally no later than 21 March. Please complete the Attendance Proforma, or simply provide this information in an email to the Branch Secretary, Jack Noble on  Please also ensure that you capture any specific requirements that you may have; any particular dietary requirements; do you require wheel chair access etc.

The attached Admin Instruction also includes details of accommodation, travel and finance; a Programme of Events is also available.  Further updates and information will be posted on the REA HQ website; the REA Gibraltar Facebook page and via email. On behalf of all ‘Sappers on the Rock', we very much look forward to your company to celebrate our friendship and heritage with the people of Gibraltar, and look forward to your very earliest confirmation of attendance.
