Tuesday was our formal EGM meeting but for the last couple of years we have met at the Ridgmont and combined it with a delicious meal. Of course we did the same this year. The committee were announced and introduced. Several members were retiring and volunteers have been found to replace them. Clare will replace me at IT Rep, Lesley replaces Pauline as Programme Secretary and Brenda B replaces Eileen H as the Librarian. The rest of the committee remains. These persons are “committee elect” until being ratified at our AGM in September but their names can now be printed on the programme. A workshop was announced, see below.
