On the evening of Thursday 19th January we met in Castleton Village Hall for our 44th AGM, to be followed by a pie and pea supper.
Maria presented her Chairman’s Report and spoke about some highlights of the past year including some great talks, our archaeology projects and the recent changes at the Visitor’s Centre (where due to building works being undertaken by the Peak District National Park the Museum is temporarily closed). We all remembered Peter Harrison, our much missed late Chairman, who died suddenly last summer.
Alan’s Treasurer’s Report showed that the Society’s finances are in good shape. A really tasty dinner was enhanced by BYO drinks, and whilst coffee and mints were being consumed Jean talked through some recently acquired old photos of local people (thanks to Josie Sidebottom and Les Robinson); Angela then followed up with a few photos from the 2016 dig.
There was a very good turnout and feedback so far suggests that it was well enjoyed!
