Thanks to all those who attended our AGM on 6 April, The meeting saw two changes to the Committee. We were pleased to welcome Norman Still, a regular attendee at our talks and auditor of our accounts, while thanks were given to Jacky Robinson who stood down from the Committee after being our Minutes Secretary for the past few years.

It had been an unusual year with not as many activities as normal, although Planning applications kept our Planning Team as busy as ever. You can find out what has been going on by clicking on our ANNUAL NEWSLETTER.

We will shortly be planning our series of TALKS starting, as usual, in October. At present, we are unable to say whether they will be held indoors or continue via Zoom or perhaps a mixture of the two. Watch this space.

TALKS 2020/21

Our talks for this season have now finished and we would like to thank all those who attended via Zoom. It was a new experience for most of us and it was gratifying to see the large numbers who attended. Please note that, as mentioned above, many past talks can be viewed by clicking HERE
