The 2008 AGM was held on Saturday 18th October 2008.
Hosted by the Abingdon Branch (assisted by East Vale) at the
Preston Road Community Centre.
 

    Before the meeting started visitors were taken by mini-bus to visit the sites of the old and the new junctions.  There was also an opportunity to view our new style display material.  Tea and coffee were available all day and a very enjoyable lunch was provided.
    The formal meeting started at 14.00.  All directors standing were re-elected. The meeting was addressed by Trust President Dr. David Fletcher. A special presentation was made to our founder member Neil Rumbol.  Pick of the Branches 2008 was presented to Swindon Branch and the Tony Davy Memorial Bowl was presented to Luke Walker.

    A Council Meeting was held after the AGM which re-appointed John Laverick as Chairman and Peter Kinsman as Treasurer.  Council also co-opted two new directors Chris Coyle and Mike Lang. Chris will be taking on the role as Company Secretary and Mike as Membership Secretary (designate).

Over 80 members attended the AGM and associated visits in Abingdon.

The next AGM is scheduled for Saturday 17th October 2009
