Annual General Meeting January 2017 – report

The Annual General Meeting of Ashby Canal Association was held on the evening of Monday 9th January 2017 at Donisthorpe Woodlands Centre (DM’s), Church St, Donisthorpe, DE12 7PY  with over 40 persons attending.  The formal business included unanimous approval of the Trustees’ Report and Accounts for the year ended 30th September 2016,  the re-election of three management committee members, and a comprehensive review of the year by the Chairman. This included an update on the current state of the restoration scheme, with opportunity for questions from the floor.

(The report and accounts can be viewed by clicking on the light green Trustees’ Report button on the home page.)

After the formal business, Geoff Pursglove  presented a varied selection of archive slides from the collection of Tom Henshaw, our late president. This proved to be a most interesting session, as most of the slides had never been seen before, and there was a lot of  input from the audience regarding identification of locations and dates, etc.   They were mostly, but not exclusively, of the Ashby Canal.   Geoff now hopes to scan some of the slides and reproduce them digitally on the archive page of this website in due course.
