2016 AGM report

Many thanks to everyone who came to the Club’s AGM on Saturday 19th November; your support is very much appreciated by the Committee. Following reports on the past year and an overview of future events, the meeting considered donations. Our resources are limited, but we thought it very worthwhile to donate £100 to flood-restoration work in the Lake District National Park; there are still many areas requiring essential work after the devastating floods last winter.

Thanks were given to our hard-working officers and Programme secretaries, as well as all those who play an essential part in leading walks, both locally and on trips away from Cambridgeshire. Meg is retiring as the autumn coach/hotel trip organiser; there will be no such trip in 2018 unless someone takes over! Or perhaps two friends might offer as a team?

Thanks were also given to the three retiring ‘ordinary’ Committee members – Norman, Paul and Christine. Each had served a 3-year term. Rita and Susanne were elected to the Committee, leaving one vacancy; if you are interested in joining, please contact Jenny.

The meeting concluded with a very entertaining talk from Dr Brian Cox on ‘Cambridge University: Past, Present & Future’. Few of those present had known that the very existence of the University depended on a murder in Oxford!
