Annual General Meeting
A Report on the AGM of Resolfen History Society
The annual general meeting of any organisation is notorious for a low attendance,however this did not prove the case on Monday 10th September since nineteen members attended the Society’s AGM.
The meeting, which kicks off the History Society’s thirtieth year started on a sad note by noting the passing of Robert Norton and more recently John Rees during the last year. Bob had been one of the few life members of the Society and John’s contribution had also been immense, in many facets of the social life of the village.
Officials and committee were elected and it was very pleasing to see new members joining the committee, which now stands at:
President: Phylip Jones
Chairman: Gwyn Thomas
Vice Chair: Jim Kent
Treasurer: Julie Hicks
Secretary: Trefor Jones
General Committee: Brenda Oakes, Mary Evans, Val Davies, Jean Thomas and Paul Minton.
Following an encouraging financial report the meeting then discussed the future direction of the Society and ways of promoting its activities. One of the avenues discussed was to renew our monthly reports in the Courier. This has now been arranged and hopefully will result in renewed good attendances at meetings.
Next month’s speaker on Monday October 8th at the Church Hall will be Mr John Richards who will speak on the history of Neath Castle.
