Letters received after the final meeting on 3 Sept 2015
It was a sad occasion – the 3rd September – when finally the funds of AFPG were distributed as per the scanned letters attached hereto.
However, it was time to call it a day for AFPG Limited.
The monies that were distributed were largely accrued from those several members who declined the refund of the money that was awarded by the Solicitors Tribunal and then confirmed in Richmonds bankruptcy by being paid from the Solicitors’ Indemnity Fund.
If any of you has any question please feel free to get in touch with me, preferably by email and I will endeavour to respond as promptly as possible.
The letter from the CEO of the UJC refers to my having an operation. It is to my right shoulder and will result in my having limited, very, movement for a number of weeks – I am right handed.
There is every reason why you should continue to harass your MP and advise the Press of the iniquity that we have to bear but please do so as a means of venting your displeasure only and not in the ardent hope of success. We have, each of us, spent hard grafted earnings on this campaign.
To each of you I send my best wishes – and apologies to those to whom I should have written in detailed response to letters regarding the ‘winding-up’ od AFPG.
If any one requires a copy of the accounts for the last 18 months of AFPG I will be pleased to send a copy in Excel format. However please make sure you include your details of membership.
In any correspondence it would be helpful if you include the Subject – AFPG Limited, Final Item
With best wishes to each of you and to your loved ones
