The South West Branch held its Annual General meeting on Friday 2 December 2016 at Tortworth Court Hotel. It was a well-attended meeting that provided the opportunity for everyone to reflect on the Branch’s work over the past year and to look forward to 2017.
The election of Officers took place and the results were as follows:
- Chair: Karoline Rowlands.
- Secretary: Anna Warman.
- Treasurer: Caroline Darvill.
- Council Representative: Michael Banks.
The Branch also held its own awards ceremony, with presentations made by Karoline Rowlands, Chair, for 100 per cent attendance and to individual Members who have had a direct input to the business and smooth and effective running of the Branch.
At the end of the AGM, Members enjoyed a quiz hosted by Mike McDonald, which proved to be extremely popular. In the spirit of goodwill at Christmas, the winning team, named ‘Gorgeous but dim’, received a prize and then all enjoyed a festive lunch.
