AGM at start of our Diamond Jubilee Year

Last nights Annual General Meeting saw the end of very many years service in various Committee posts for Miss Kathleen Thomas. She has decided to retire and just enjoy the VPA and the exciting year ahead. Her recently very well deserved Life Membership reflects the esteem she is held in. Our President Marion Tucker who continues working tirelessly for our VPA and the Community  Hall was given the accolade of Life Membership at the beginning of our Diamond Jubilee Year last night. We now have Four Life Members Mr Brian Savegar our Original Secretary and Mr Geoff Slater  our Ex Treasurer make up a Highly esteemed Quartet.

An excellent past year was reflected upon and everyone involved was thanked for their part in this. Everyone  was re-elected apart from Kath who had held the post of Speaker Arranger. We still have to fill that position in the future. An updated Constitution was passed by the Members.

Plans were given for the forthcoming Christmas Lunch provided by “Sisters Catering” and we look forward to our Concert Party from Llangynidr,followed by Christmas Carols with Mrs Wooley.Details were given of the Social events and Outings next year. These will be published at a later date. The first Meeting of 2016 is on Monday January 18th at 7:00pm when we will enjoy a presentation by Susan Russell “Perfume in the Garden”. As normal everyone is most welcome.
