David Muston is preparing a PowerPoint presentation to accompany the meeting. Those wishing to submit a report should do so, as usual, direct to him by Friday 17th September at david@davidmustondesign.co.uk. Representatives will have the opportunity to talk to their report at the meeting.

Nominations are invited for the posts of Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer and up to six committee members. All committee members, are willing to continue in place, but we have two vacancies and would appreciate more support. We would welcome the contribution of new members and are also well aware of the need to ensure appropriate succession. So please consider putting yourself forward for nomination this year. We are looking in particular for people to join the Executive Committee to help foster relationships with the wider community from a heritage standpoint - especially with business and educational organisations.
