Our AGM and Members Meeting will be rescheduled to a later date. In the meantime we will continue with our existing committee.

Easter 2020

This year’s Easter Meet will be at the De Montfort School in Evesham from Thursday 9th to Tuesday 14th April. Returning to Evesham we can be assured of a warm welcome from the school, which always goes a long way in ensuring a great meet.

The regular Easter Meet attendees will be looking forward to the event. If you have never been before, we are sure that you will enjoy yourself whatever your age, so do come along and join us. We have been pleased to welcome an increasing number of non-Folk Group members to Easter in recent years.

The follow-on meet will be at Brailes from Tuesday 14th to Sunday 19th April.

The booking form for Easter 2020 is printed in the latest Folk Group Newsletter, along with additional information about the event, or you can download the Easter 2020 Booking Form from here.

AGM & Members Meeting 2020

The AGM of the Wessex Area will be held at the Weyhill Fairground Hall on Saturday 25th April, starting at 3pm. Signing in will commence at 2.30pm, and please remember your membership cards. Now is the time to put the date in your diary, if it’s not already there.

There are 6 vacancies on the committee. The retiring Officers are Stella Callow, Peter Mullens, Richard Perry and Sarah Perry, all of whom are all willing to stand for re-election subject to their acceptance of a nomination. Nominations for the Committee, signed by the proposer, seconder and nominee, should be submitted to the Area Secretary before the commencement of the meeting.

If you’ve been in the Folk Group for over a year, have you considered volunteering for the Committee? Or do you just leave it ‘to those that have always done it’? Please give some thought to offering your services to help run the Group.

Notices of Motion, supported by the signatures of twenty-five voting members, should be submitted in writing to the Area Secretary by 22nd February 2020.

The AGM will be followed by a Members Meeting, which is a great opportunity to have your say about the group.
