AGM Update

The Agenda, Draft Annual Report and Financial Report are now up on the website here for members to view prior to the meeting in ten days time, that is Saturday 27th October at 10am in Godalming at the usual venue. There will be free tea and coffee prior to the meeting (supplementary charge for gin), but we’ll pay for the gin or another drink of your choice following the meeting. Please ask any member of the Committee on arrival how to claim your drink(s) – there is a process.
