chairman February 2020

It seems hard to believe but here we are already well into 2020. Our enthusiastically received Christmas meeting seems to have faded into the distant past.

The very interesting January talk on the Dutch Golden Age by John Lang kicked off the year to a flying start. In February Sarah Marsden will introduce us to Queen Victoria, grandmother of Europe. Then of course we have the AGM on March 10th.

At the moment we are seeking a Secretary, a Vice-chairman, a Subscriptions Secretary and someone to manage the tea rota. All the current holders of these roles are very happy to mentor a new person and things are well prepared into the immediate future - so nothing scary there and of course all these roles can be shared. A proposal form will be in this newsletter so please think about offering a little time to keeping our organisation going.
