Reports

 

"Down your Way"

 

The usual pull of visitors and other events of a May bank holiday weekend coincided once again with our Annual General Meeting, depleting numbers attending.

All committee members were re-elected, usual thanks were extended to all concerned for a well received winter programme and financial position achieved.

Our society recorder brought along a second local views calendar for 2019, on sale at the same price to raise further funds.

 

Lively Cornish place and people in-house quiz followed the AGM, readings of prose and poetry reflected on the 100 years anniversary of the ending of WW 1.

 

Members Cornish supper was served by the ladies committee.

 

Our winter programme starts once more on Fri 28th September, the speaker will be Frank Argall on the history of Argall Photographers 1865-1913, annual subscriptions remain at £5.00, visitors will be made very welcome at a charge of £1.00 admission.   The village hall has a large car park and disabled access.
