Latest News on the AGM
The 2017 Annual Meeting will take place in Bedford on 22-24 September. The AGM itself will be held at 1200 on Saturday 23 September at The Higgins, a gallery and museum. Afterwards we will see some of the gallery's material on Edward Bawden and Joe Pearson will give an illustrated talk on Bawden's connection with Penguin.
The leaflet in the summer posting gives an outline of the programme, which will include a pub supper on the Friday and an informal dinner on Saturday. It also includes the formal notice and agenda of the AGM and the proxy form to enable you to vote if you can't attend.
If you do plan to attend, please contact James Mackay (details in the Collector) who will send you a booking form. This will enable you to book a display table (if required) and refreshments during the day and the dinner on Saturday evening. There is no need to book for the AGM itself but it would aid planning if you let us know that you will attend!
For members who wish to stay, we have arranged a discounted B&B rate (for the two nights) at The Embankment which is close to The Higgins. The telephone number is 01234 261332 and you should use the reference PCS. Rooms will be held for us until 20 June. There is other accommodation in the area but The Embankment is probably the most convenient.
