The branch held their Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 17 th January 2024. This was attended by 6 Committee members and 8 ordinary members.
John Wayman was elected Chairman, Reg Sargeant Vice Chairman and Colin Rolle Examiner of Accounts. No volunteers came forward to fill the two vacancies on the Committee. After a discussion on the finances and the increase in postal charges, it was proposed and seconded to increase the membership by £1.00 from January 2025. This was agreed by all present.

A proposal was put forward to nominate Reg Sargeant for National Chairman, this was seconded and voted unanimously.
Geoff Griffiths gave an excellent talk and picture presentation.
After the meeting several members stayed on for a meal and a drink. Hope to see more members at the next General Meeting on Wednesday 22 nd May.
