RYE HISTORICAL SOCIETY – ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 28th AUGUST 2023

The AGM Agenda was distributed and copies of the Minutes of the last AGM, the President’s Report and Treasurer’s report were available for members.

After Committee positions were declared vacant, Noel Tyzack, as the Returning Officer, was asked to confirm the Office Bearers and Committee for 2023/2024.

Secretary: Prue Found
Treasurer: Danny Jennings

Committee: Shirley Bird, Catherine Cox, Christine Evans, John Hazledine, Ian McBeath.

The President thanked Committee members for their contributions over the last year.

Motion:  Mr Russell Atkins to be Honorary Auditor for 2023/24. Carried

The AGM ended at 2.30pm.

“BRING A TREASURE”  EVENT

Upon completion of the AGM, members were invited to take part in the annual “Bring a Treasure” Event.  This provides members with opportunity to display a treasured item and to tell of its history and what it means to them.  This is always an enjoyable event, but this year members exceeded expectations!  Our members really do have some absolute treasures and I’m sure we will all look forward to next year’s offerings. – LW
