The 11th AGM of the Thurne Community Archive Group (TCAG) was held on Tuesday 5th April 2016 in Thurne Methodist Church. The Treasurer’s Report showed that the financial position of TCAG remains healthy but, of course, donations are always welcome to help further and support the work of the TCAG. The Steering Group were re-elected en bloc unanimously. The Chairman presented a Review of the Year which is presented here but the main highlights were:
· Wild Flower Project launched
· Village Diary continues to be kept
· Display at Thurne Fete in July
· Website expanded to cover new and existing projects
· Stitching project continuing.
On conclusion of the formal business, Simon Partridge, Director of the How Hill Trust, gave a most interesting and enthusiastic talk on the history of the iconic building at How Hill and its transition into an educational trust. Afterwards there were refreshments and the opportunity to meet Simon and view Village Scrapbooks, the Graveyard Survey and the website.
