On 17 November 2016 we held our first AGM and annual dinner at Hotel du Vin in Bristol.
The evening was a busy one - Acting Secretary Gemma Pouncy gave a run-down of the group's activities in 2016, which included:
We then ratified the group's constitution and (in what was possibly – or possibly not – the most hotly debated election of November 2016!) held our first elections for the committee. Please click here to see the members of the new committee.
There followed plenty of time to meet, chat and enjoy a wonderful three course meal.
Thank you to everybody who joined us, and for all of the ongoing support from members and committee alike. In all of the excitement, we forgot to take any pictures so if you have any photographs of the event which you would like to share, please email them over! We hope that you enjoyed the evening, and look forward to seeing you at another event soon.
