Treasurer’s Report: PT reported that 23 members have paid their 2009/2010 subs. Reminders, together with a copy of the 2009/2010 program will be sent to those members who have not yet paid.


Joyce Tranter has given us a full set of SCAN. Copies that are not wanted by us will be passed to the North Crawley Historical group.

The Citizen newspaper is no longer delivered to households in the village. Instead it is left in the shop – we need to find out whether or not it has now to be paid for and, if so, do we want to pay for a copy in order to get the “Around the Villages” column!

The Newport Pagnell Historical Society’s walk around Sherington with Philip Smith is on the 21st July. The date is on our own program and KT has booked the village hall for refreshments.

Ray Bailey and Philip Smith are organising a walk to Tyringham Church on Sunday, 5th July. Barry Clayton has agreed to give us a short talk on Tyringham and Sir John Soane. The walk will leave the Knoll at 2pm. Arrangements subject to the weather!

Gail Wood has completed the reorganisation of the Village photograph files. She will now commence on the Buildings files.

The meeting closed at 9:25pm
The next committee meeting will be on Tuesday, 28th April
