The paragraph after the AGM 2009 should have had a heading, reading 'Caroline Leslie’s Water Colour Painting'.

Matters Arising:

The walk for the Newport Pagnell History Society, with Philip Smith, has been arranged. Mark will include the date in our new programme of events, in case any of our members wish to attend.

Tribute Evening
The film show Tribute Evening to the late Peter Gardner on the 10th February 2009 was very successful. The committee wish to thank Oliver Powell for producing the footage that he showed on the evening. .

Chairman’s Report
ii. PowerPoint Presentations:
More and more speakers seem to require power point for a means of presenting a talk. The committee have requested if Oliver Powell could look into the cost of a projector for the society. The monies we hope to obtain from the grant, to cover the Sherington Welcome Pack, could be used for the purchase.

iv. Old SCAN magazines
Pam Ellis has told MV that she would like to make available old copies of the SCAN magazines to the society. We shall check against the list to see which copies we are missing and take second copies of the front covers for the artist file. Spare copies will be offered to North Crawley Historical Society.

Treasurer’s Report:
A cheque for £119 plus £10 cash donation was sent to Willen Hospice. These amounts were the proceeds of the raffle from the Tribute Evening for the Late Peter Gardner.
