Over seventy people arrived for this evening’s AGM undeterred by heavy rain. The buffet after the meeting rather than the business during it was the likely attraction. Our group is never short of helpers. The room was prepared remarkably quickly. Chairs were set out; tables were set up. People turned up with food. Many came with gifts for the raffle. The organiser of this did such a good job (he must have been extra persuasive) that he raised £150. Some found the room rather cold (this might have helped reduce the soporific effect of the meeting) but otherwise there were no problems.
