Christmas and New Year - Office closures 2021

May we wish all our Members and friends a Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous 2022. As always our best wishes and thoughts are particularly with the crews who keep watch on board ships at sea through this time.

We hope you will have the opportunity for a well-earned holiday. Our offices follow local customs when taking holidays during the Christmas and New Year holiday period but maintain a roster of duty contacts throughout that time. 

Duty executives for the various area groups and local offices are listed in the Emergency & AOH Contacts page. This information is updated to ensure it is current throughout the holiday period.

The Emergency and AOH contacts details in the Making Contact section cover regional offices as well as London.
