The AGM - in the open at last

A boisterous electorate prepare to do battle

At last the day of reckoning arrives, as we all knew it would. The committee throw one last, desperate strategem by holding the meeting in the garden, hoping that the combination of noise from the adjacent Merseyrail operation and the evening chill would curtail the free and frank discussion that everyone was ready for. However democracy was not to be outdone, and the meeting was one of the longer AGMs in recent years.

A worried committee considering last-minute ploys to save face and keep their careers intact.

And the content? The committee were voted in unopposed, everyone congratulated everyone else on a successful year and we got stuck in to the beer and sausage rolls, before repairing to the lounge for a showing of a video on the Darjeeling railway. Bit disappointing, really.
