Annual General Meeting

Monday 21st November 2016 will be our Annual General Meeting, starting at 7:00pm.An end to what has been a most difficult year, since I joined in 1992.There have been many “Highs and Lows” and lots of mixed emotions for various reasons for different members. Without an excellent Committee to steer the way we could have been in a very difficult position. Let us hope that 2016-2017 will be more of a “Stress Free Year”! If you know anyone who might enjoy our Activities please bring them along to see what they think. We really need to increase our Membership.

After our Business meeting tonight I will endeavour to give a presentation “Our VPA” to finish off our “Diamond Jubilee Year”. We also look forward to our Christmas Lunch on Monday December 12th, 1:00pm for 1:30pm.If you have not booked yet please do so quickly. 

We have some wonderful Speakers to look forward to in 2017.What promise to be good Outings to Gloucester on Thursday 27th April and “Tyntesfield” on July 6th. Once we get to February our Social Secretary will have more idea about seat availability for Non-Members.We look forward to  another Tea Party, Harvest Service and Supper, Christmas Lunch, two Jumble Sales and the Annual Members Show. Maureen our Secretary already has a suggestion for an Outing in 2018 !

Thank you to everyone who has contributed in any way to the past year .Our thoughts are with Members who have lost Loved ones during this time.
