Friends AGM

A brisk AGM on 3 September, attended by some 20 members, saw the existing committee of Nigel Swann (Chair), Mick Moore (Treasurer), Gwen Hallam and Rosemary Barton re-elected for a further year.

Nigel’s review of the year included an appreciation of the work of Tony Raybold, the previous Chairman, who died in December 2011. 

The events organised during the year had been well-attended and successful (even the Spring Walk, which turned into the Spring Pub Meal after a deluge put paid to the walk).  Tony Hallam’s second talk on the church’s stained glass proved as popular as the first, and the Friends marked their 70th anniversary by contributing to the cost of cleaning the East Window.

Mick Moore’s Treasurer’s report noted that income was appreciably less than expenditure during the year, but the Friends had adequate reserves to meet foreseeable expenditure in the coming year.

An outsider’s comment (reported from the floor) that the Friends website bore witness to a very active organisation was appreciated as recognition of the Committee’s work over the year.

The official business concluded at 19.55 and members were then able to browse the extensive display of photos, postcards, newspaper cuttings and other church memorabilia-including a model of the bus celebrating the 750th anniversary of the church in 1984.
