The Watton Society AGM

The Society held its AGM on Wednesday 20th October. This was a two-year AGM as we had not met in person since February 2019.

We had a reasonable attendance with the Town Mayor (who is also our President) in attendance.

The chairman gave his report on the past two years along with the treasurer’s report. The Mayor then took the chair for the election of officers and the committee. The following were elected: – Chairman John Kerr, Secretary Roy Challand, Treasurer Judy Kerr, Committee member Margaret Cater. Other members offered to help with activities but could not commit to full committee memberships as were away a lot during the year.

Three committee members have had to stand down due to health problems and close family issues.

The Mayor thanked the Society for its support to the town and informed the Society that there should sufficient funds in her fund to pay for the refurbishment of the Society’s notice board in Chaston Place.

The meeting then closed and after refreshments took part in a fun quiz.
