In these difficult times it is impossible for your Committee to know whether our reunion in Liverpool in October will be able to go ahead.
However, your committee has made plans for the reunion, which at the moment, are still in place and you can read them below.
Members will already have received their Journals with the information and booking forms enclosed.
We will keep you informed of any future decisions through this website and on our Facebook page.
Our best wishes to everyone and please keep safe at this difficult time.
APS Regional Reunion 2020
Holiday Inn Hotel, Lime Street, Liverpool L1 1NQ
We look forward to welcoming APS members and non-members to our Annual Reunion in 2020.
Please try to find and encourage ex-IMM people to come along.
Liverpool is a city that is very special to us all and one that has had an amazing transformation in the last decade. However, because of this, it is an enormously popular visitor destination and consequently hotel rooms get booked up very early and they are not cheap. We have reserved some rooms for our members at the Holiday Inn but it is up to individuals to confirm their bookings and pay the hotel direct. Please do not depend on getting a last minute deal, book early wherever you decide to stay.

You and your friends can choose to eat in the View Restaurant of the Holiday Inn (see Booking form) or try one of the many restaurants available on your doorstep in the city centre.

The Holiday Inn – City Centre
Lime Street, Liverpool
The Holiday Inn Liverpool City Centre is in the heart of Liverpool’s vibrant city centre; located opposite Liverpool Lime Street Station, overlooking the neoclassical splendour of St. George’s Hall.
The hotel is a short walk from the Walker Art Gallery and the Empire Theatre. A 15-minute stroll takes you to the lively Albert Dock, packed with sites like the Beatles Museum and Tate Liverpool. The Liverpool One complex, teeming with shops and restaurants is right on the doorstep.
Let the train take the strain – the hotel is directly opposite Lime Street Station. However if you must bring your car there is a secure car park (St John’s) adjacent to the hotel at a rate of £6 per 24 hours . Parking tickets have to be counter-stamped by the hotel.
Our meeting takes place in the Liverpool 1 Suite which is on the 2nd floor, with stairs and lift access from the entrance foyer. Although the room has no natural light it is spacious and air-conditioned. Tea and coffee will be available in the concourse outside Liverpool 1. Lunch will be served in the Restaurant overlooking the city and dinner will be in Liverpool 2.
The AGM will finish at approx. 3pm in order to give you time to see something of Liverpool with your friends.
This year APS will not book any overnight rooms. This can be done directly with the Holiday Inn or you can choose to stay at any of the other hotels in the vicinity.
A booking form was inserted in your Journal if you are a member. If you require more booking forms, or you are not a member of APS and need booking forms, you can request them through this website.
