AGM

Members are invited each year to our Annual General Meeting where the business of the Society is combined with our annual lecture. This takes place in a central London church and is free of charge to members and guests are welcome too for a £20 charge which goes towards the cost of the evening.  There is usually a short drinks reception after the AGM and the evening ends at around 8.00pm to 8.30pm.   Members apply by filling in a form which is found in the Members-only area of our website.  To enter this you have to click on the Members tab, see above, enter a password, click on Future Visits and see the form to fill in.   (If you forget your password do email ali@everington.net).

This year (2021) the AGM took place ‘virtually’ in February at the beautiful Church of St. Bartholomew-the-Great in London.   Charles Moore spoke about how the society is faring and he gave a talk about Thomas Gray’s famous poem “Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard”, which was wonderfully declaimed by actor Robert Bathurst.  If you missed it, you can still listen to it on our website.  Go to the Home Page, scroll to the bottom, and you can click and watch it.
