Bourne Conservation Group’s 16th AGM

Twenty one Members and Friends of the Bourne Conservation Group attended the 16th Annual General Meeting at Noel and Edelgard Moss’ home on Sunday 16th September 2018. Everyone was saddened to hear of the recent death of Wendy Maddox who had undertaken so much historical research for the Group.

As Chairman, Noel Moss presented the Annual Report covering the achievements of the Group for the year ended 31st March 2018, a biodiversity report, on which Martin Angel spoke, and a look forward to the work the Group will undertake in the coming year. He stressed the need to recruit new members, while welcoming the involvement of a number of young people pursuing their Duke of Edinburgh Awards. The Financial Report showed no great change from the healthy position last year, but arrangements were in hand to acquire more funding for projects in 2019.

Vicky Hill was welcomed onto the Committee as Membership Secretary in place of Karen Redman. All other Committee members were re-elected apart from Lisa Malcolm, who has had to resign through pressure of work. Very many thanks go to Karen and Lisa who will continue as active Members. Vacancies for a Committee Member for Horticultural and for Planning remain unfilled.

As always, there was lively discussion on a range of topics and the afternoon ended with tea and cakes and more discussion.
