I hope that you are all keeping well and finding plenty to do in these difficult times at least the weather has been good for the gardeners amongst us.
This Thursday [14 May] would have been the last Civic Society public meeting until September but the way things are going it will be the January 2021 AGM before we can hold meetings again. We are now planning the Public and History Group programme for next year.
I have decided to stay on as Secretary for 2021 as in the current climate looking for another is not possible. I would however like to have a “Minutes Secretary” for Executive meetings which are 5 per year and would be pleased to hear from any member who would like further details and also anyone who would be interested in taking over from me in 2022.
This year is the 50th Anniversary of Clevedon Civic Society so hopefully we can celebrate next year.
