The AGM was well attended once again this year at the newly refurbished Church Hall. A minute's silence was held to note the sad passing of former Chairman Jim Kent and Maggs Jones the wife of the Secretary.

There was little change in the officers or general committee, with Olwen Woosnam joining the committee as the only revision.

The Treasurer gave a detailed financial breakdown and reported a small profit on the year.

Both the Chairman and the President addressed the meeting in turn. They praised the hard work of the Society's officers and the loyalty of the membership in what was a very successful history society. Mr Phylip Jones spoke warmly of Mr Jim Kent and how he had made a great effort to immerse himself in his adopted community. Mr Gwyn Thomas stated that Maggs Jones had been a support to the Secretary and would be greatly missed.They both noted that the  lectures, trips and outings had all been successful and everyone was looking forward to an equally exciting new season
