2019 AGM

Members met in March for the 41st Annual General Meeting. Proceedings went through rapidly as there was nothing contentious to discuss.

We welcomed a new member to the Committee who has agreed to be our Vice-Chairman - Rob Dunford. The remainder of the previous committee members were all elected for a further term of office. Most have been in position for well over the statutory maximum 7 years but, like other organisations, we are finding it almost impossible to attract people prepared to volunteer to help. This is of considerable concern as should the situation not improve it will not be long before we have to disband despite experiencing excellent attendance at all our events and a membership in the region of 400 members.

Members waiting for the proceedings to commence.
