About 80 people, including the Town Mayor, Cllr Graham Hill, Leader of the Town Council, Cllr Peter Hicks, Town & County Cllr, Andrew Joy, and our Member of Parliament, Damian Hinds, attended the AGM on Saturday 15 Nov.
Outgoing Chairman, Mike Heelis, outlined the events and achievements of an extremely busy year. Treasurer Peter Holden showed the society’s accounts to be in a healthy state.
Bob Booker was elected as Chairman and Barbara Burfoot as Vice-Chairman.
Martin Small, of English Heritage, did us proud with an entertaining and highly informative address.
Many thanks to the Swan Hotel.
There have been many appreciative comments about the Neighbourhood Plan options presentation in the Assembly Rooms on Saturday November 22.
Mike Heelis made his presentation eight times to a total attendance of about 1,000 people. This has been an extremely difficult exercise and the working party’s recommendations will of course be controversial in places. But everyone admires the care and the fair-mindedness which they have exercised.
