The AGM gets underway, left to right Dominic Morris, Susan McEwen, Carl Stott

The Committee had several changes this year.

Susan McEwen retired as Chairman, as she announced last year, and Dominic Morris CBE was elected in her place.

Mike Padmore replaced Dominic as Hon.Secretary.

MacMcClaren retired as Newsletter Editor, and a replacement is sought!

Graham Coles also retired from the Committee.

It is very clear that a volunteer to take over running Auctions is urgently required, though the next two will be covered.

The meeting thanked Susan for all her hard work and contributions as Chairman for the last six years, and for her very many years in many other roles as author, project leader, Auction Manager and many other duties.
