  History Society lunch
The January meeting was our winter lunch at the Dolphin. Good food, friendly atmosphere and lots of chat. It looks like it could become an annual event.

    A.G.M. and Members Evening 18th February, 2019

The AGM and members evening took place on at our ‘new’ venue of Llanymynech church hall.
The hall was warm and the electricity supply did not fail.
Twenty members accepted Liz Amys’ healthy financial report, thank you Liz, and approved the continuation of committee members.
Members shared several ideas for the 2020 programme which the committee will take forward.
Paddy Martin  gave a talk on the history of the church hall, reviving relatively recent memories [CLICK to see transcript  of Paddy’s talk].
Ruth Allcock spoke of villages drowned to make reservoirs [CLICK to see transcript of Ruth’s talk].
John Pinfold updated the group on good progress being made on his researches of Llanymynech race courses.
