The 12th AGM of the Thurne Community Archive Group (TCAG) was held on Tuesday 28th March 2017 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 was 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 continues
· Village Diary continues to be kept
· Display at Thurne Fete in July
· Website continues
· Stitching project continuing.
On conclusion of the formal business, we were delighted to welcome Ivan Cane who as the East Anglian Waterways Association's Archivist for the North Walsham & Dilham Canal Records gave a fascinating talk entitled ‘Norfolk's Hidden Archaeological Gem’- the North Walsham & Dilham Canal 1826-2026. During the interval, there were refreshments and the opportunity to meet Ivan and view Village Scrapbooks and the latest progress on the Map Stitching project.
