The AGM 2009

Another Happy AGM

For the second year running, attendees of the annual general meeting were entertained by a guest speaker who had laughter ringing out.
Dr Martin Stephen is High Master of St.Paul’s School in London. He is author of fifteen books on English literature and naval history as well as four novels featuring his seventeenth-century hero Henry Gresham.
Author of A Diary of a Stroke, he reprised his story, re-living many of the episodes that he, his wife and children experienced, including describing the exercise regimes one of which had him walking up and down the stripes on his lawn. An inspiring man who held our attention.
The business part of the meeting brought one surprise. John Manley, a founder member of the group Hon. treasurer and organiser of our Christmas dinner – among other things – announced that he must stand down. Currently going through a personal health crisis, John was deeply sad to surrender his duties, but indicated his wish to remain one of the trustees. All present gave him rousing applause and many wishes for his future good health.

As the Irish comedian used to say “Let your God go with you”
