Dear Members,

Let me start by saying thank you to all who were able to attend the AGM. It was probably the best AGM we have had so far, thanks to the fact that we have two members whose birthdays coincide with the AGM dates. Happy birthday to Kay and our new member Gail. Thank you both for the contribution to the wine and snacks and for making the AGM evening most attractive. With 16 members able to be present and apologies from the rest.

We have pleasure to welcome another new member Caroline Leslie. We need to say little about Caroline as her little children are legendary in Sherington, I feel she must have the largest family it is possible to have, except for maybe Beatrice Potter. But Caroline is still young yet. I also think that we may have another set of Sherington notelets in the pipeline.

You will be relieved to know all of your committee members were re-elected, without any need for new volunteers!!!!

Being that family history has become the fastest growing leisure activity in the country at this time, two of our members volunteered to talk briefly on the subject after the AGM business was finished.. A subject that can bore non-believers to distraction. A word here, our theme for the stand at the village fete this year, will be "Who Do You Think Your Ancestors Were" obviously family history orientated. So if any of you Sheringtonians have some thing to add to our theme please let us (Committee) know.

Now a brief synopsis of the two talks:-

Gail's Talk On Researching Family History

Our next meeting will be on 12th April at 8pm in the village hall and will be a "Byegones Evening" masterminded by Philip Smith.
