It was agreed that next year we will attempt to repeat this year’s reduced programme, as follows:
- Spring Meeting – historical – John Hainsworth (local historian and novelist: author of The Llanfyllin Workhouse, A Corruptible Crown etc) has kindly offered to talk about bastardy in the Llanfyllin Workhouse. Provisional date April 10th 2013.
- Summer event – St. Myllin’s Day Celebrations organised – we hope – by Marinke Fontein and George Stroud. Provisional date June 15th 2013.
- Autumn Meeting – natural history – Brayton Holt (local ornithologist and author of The Mongomeryshire Bird Atlas etc) will talk about local birdlife. Provisional date September 11th 2013.
- Annual Photographic Competition – possibly organised in conjunction with Arts Connection’s Ffilmic Film Festival. Provisional date October/November 2013.
- AGM – possibly with more local films. Provisional date Nov/Dec 2013.
We also hope to continue production of the monthly Civic Society Newsletter of events and information about local matters of importance, with an increased circulation through its own website. Join the automatic mailing list by emailing the new editor Dave Goodman email@example.com or filling in the form on the website.
Views expressed in the Newsletter will be those of the individuals providing the information and will not necessarily represent the views of the Society – we are providing a notice board for information so that people can make up their own minds on local issues.
It was proposed and agreed that although administration (bank accounts, our constitution etc) should remain the same, Llanfyllin & District Civic Society should be known in future as The Llanfyllin Society.
It was proposed and agreed that the Society should resume the collection of membership fees of £5 pa. Membership (Jan to Dec) would give free access to all Society events (otherwise £2 for each event) and money raised would assist with publicity and other Society expenses.
Thanks were given to Sue Bosson for her past work on the CS Programme, to Pauline Page Jones for her work with the CS Newsletter and to Dave Goodman for taking on the Newsletter and for creating the fantastic new website.
If there is anyone who would like to take on the production of a fuller programme than the one proposed – or who has any ideas about new directions for the society – they would be very warmly welcomed!
