The result of the AGM:

Thank you to all those members who kindly supported the committee's recommendations at the "virtual" AGM last month.

We are delighted to welcome Dr Caroline Ness as our new Chairman, and to welcome Bob Hitchenor as a new committee member. The rest of the committee is unchanged from last year - Helen Lockhart (Secretary), David Whiteley (Treasurer), Roger Day (Membership Secretary), Hugh Pihlens (Archivist), Alistair Fyfe and Rosi Richardson.

The next meeting: 

We are currently enjoying our usual summer break, but are really looking forward to resuming our programme of monthly talks in September. We are expecting to be able to resume these as normal face-to-face talks in the Corn Exchange.

The next meeting will be on Wednesday 22nd September, when our HHA Secretary Helen Lockhart will be talking on "Lady Craven and Benham Park".
