Tag Archives: AGM 2016


IMG_9878A very big thank you to all members and interested parties who sacrificed a Sunday afternoon and attended our AGM on the 21st August.  It was a nice turn-out.  Things went smoothly as usual.  Paul Shaw presided over his last meeting with Carol Shaw acting as secretary also at her last meeting.  We cannot thank them both enough for their very generous support, direction & huge amounts of time & energy they have dedicated to this project.
Ann Green has also stepped down from the committee.  Her time & energy on the committee, organising & producing the guide book has been very much appreciated.
We wish Paul, Carol & Ann all the best for the future.

The new president of the committee is Joan Pryde.  The other remaining committee members are –Phil Painter, John Rainbow, Monica Chandler, Robyn McMillan.

We welcome our new committee members – Helen Wilson, Jude Livingston, Pete Livingston.

We have also had notice that Sue Piper has also resigned from the committee.

Phil Painter delivered the financial report & it was very heartening to see how big a step-up the Festival has made in the last 2 years & that there was a substantial increase in the donation to our nominated charity last year.  

At our next committee meeting we will allocate the remaining committee roles and discuss the work schedule for the 2017 festival.
