A few words re the April Meeting

Excellent meeting last night. Average number of folks attending has now doubled on last years figures – despite very low key advertising for Scott Nicholas, the council’s Conservation Officer.

Plenty of issues were raised in Scott’s question and answer session that over ran the normal time – but mixed in with the positives, there was some bad news as regards the council’s influence and authority as to tackling the issue of important buildings falling into disrepair.

Unfortunately I was tied up with setting up our new presentation equipment and did not have the opportunity to greet the new visitors to our meeting – so a belated welcome to those newcomers, I hope you found the presentation of value to you – plus we will be moving to a larger room in the building should you wish to come again, hopefully making the experience more relaxing and comfortable. Our thanks go to Rodney Ward for organising this.

As was mentioned, we have the opportunity of two meetings during the summer recess, one being a talk on the town’s Black and White Buildings – held in the afternoon by Janet Murphy and the second an offer to lead a walking tour of Whittington by Barry Bingham, local historian and collector, who unfortunately couldn’t make it last night.

If you are interested in either of these events, please contact me or Janet Murphy. Or email us – info@cadlhs.org.uk
