AGMs are not the most exciting of events, but it is the annual occasion when the membership have an opportunity to support the people that make your association function. Whether your Council and volunteers receive plaudits or brickbats, it is an important excercise in democracy - please attend.

To encourage you to attend, we have a really interesting event planned for you at the Royal Gunpowder Mills, Waltham Abbey, Essex EN9 1JY.
