    A.G.M.and Members Evening 17th Feb

The AGM and members evening took place on at Llanymynech church hall.
After an extended period of high winds and very heavy rain, the weather was kind with a dry evening but much local flooding.
Sixteen members approved the reappointment of committee members and welcomed Liz’s very healthy financial report for 2019.
Many  ideas and suggestions were put forward for the 2021 programme. The committee will take these forward and make firm plans for next year.
John Pinfold gave a fascinating talk on his grandfather’s canal business entitled: "Harris Barges, Whitchurch Warehousing, and the Chester and Liverpool Lighterage Company: the story of a failed enterprise on the Ellesmere Canal".Paddy Martin delved back into her family history including an ancestor who paid to train as a nurse and ended by marrying the top man in the hospital.
