This issue completes two years of our quarterly magazine, with which we try to keep you informed about what is going on in your Borough and Rural District.

Our last meeting saw the election of Miss Joan Howe to the Chair of the Society, and we wish her every success in this post.  Her predecessor, Jim Worgan, has retired gracefully to the Vice Chairman’s position after an excellent tour of duty at the helm. Thank you Jim for all your hard work.

As hinted in our last issue, the interest from the schools in our attempts to interest year eight students in the running of their town has declined sharply over the last two years, so we have decided reluctantly to abandon this project for the time being.  An alternative proposal is in the early planning stages.  More will be revealed later in the year.

Our hardworking Minute Secretary Philip has been seeking a successor, but understandably no one is prepared to follow on the very high standard he has set. Luckily a compromise has been reached whereby notes will be taken on a rota and Philip will continue to write them up and produce the minutes.

Don’t forget, we are always on the look out for new members. If you are concerned about the future of your local environment, do think about joining us.  From September we shall be back to our meeting times on the second Friday afternoon of each month.  2.00 pm in the Orme Centre.
