AGM – farewell to Miriam

Thank you to everyone who made time to join the team for the AGM, held in the Broad Street Library so the popular LEGO exhibition could be enjoyed.

Miriam Griffiths (Chair) gave her farewell Chairman’s Report as she stepped down after three years at the helm. Jane Adams (Secretary) has been appointed Chair for purposes of the Charity Commission’s regulations although a rolling Chair among the trustees is now in operation until further notice. New trustees are welcomed and encouraged!

Christy Bolderson (Treasurer) presented the accounts for the period 2018-2019 and asked if there are any accountants in the midst who could spare an ‘hour or two’ to oversee the accounts, then please do contact her for further details.

A brief outline of Herefordshire Council’s procurement process for the Museum Service was presented by MLA Manager, Jon Chedgzoy.

The formal meeting was followed by an entertaining talk about Herefordshire’s Museums by Dave Marshall, Chair of the Cider Museum, member of the Herefordshire Cultural Partnership, Chair of Friends of Herefordshire Museums and Arts.
