Tuesday 2nd July was our AGM. It is the last meeting of the season. It was here that winners of our in-house competition were awarded their trophies for the year:
Our Officers gave their reports.
The reports were positive and our group is continuing to grow!
Finally, there was some sad news. After four years, Phyllida Scrivens stepped down as Chairman. Phyllida has contributed a great deal to the group, infusing each meeting with her energy and verve, and given everything she has to ensure members are welcome and happy. We at the NWC will always appreciate everything she has done as Chairman.
She’ll be a tough act to follow, but we can think of nobody better for the task than Iain Andrews! Iain has been an outstanding member for many years and we have the utmost confidence that he will rise to every challenge.
There was a brief ‘passing of the torch’ between the former chair the the new. And by ‘torch’ we of course mean the gavel:
It’s been an amazing season. Thank you to all the members, guests, speakers, committee members and officers who make it all possible. This group wouldn’t be possible without you.
We look forward to starting a new season in September. The new programme will be posted soon. Keep an eye out for it. We hope to see everyone there, and would welcome any new members.

In the mean time, there is still time to enter to Olga Sinclair Open Short Story Competition.
