2019 PROGRAMME - FEBRUARY 27th

Our Annual General Meetings begin with the necessary business with reports and election of the Officers and Committee.  This usually takes no more than half an hour.  Following that we all have a fun quiz which for the last decade or so has been devised by Roy Wood and his wife Margaret. A prize is given for the winning Lady and the winning Gent.  PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU BRING A PEN OR PENCIL.  The evening then finishes with light refreshments and a chance to get to know the other members.
