Branch AGM

The AGM took place on March 1 at our regular venue, the Longlands Hotel. The Committee and all officials were re-elected plus new member Derrick Snallem.  Our auction saw the Vorn rucksack, kindly donated by Geraint Short, go to Steve Cowles. Signed copies of stalking books were donated by Peter Kenworthy, Wendy, and the late John Neville. These were well bid for and the auction raised £215 for Branch funds. Many thanks to the donors of the lots and to the lucky bidders. The programme of events for 2019 was read out and is on the Branch web page.



To save our branch funds and to keep you updated with events if we do not have your current email address please would you let us know?
