Friends of Horningsea Church – Report on the AGM

The Friends’ Annual General Meeting was held in the church on 11 June 2017.

John Rooke continues as Chairman and Michael Harrison as Treasurer for another year. The Friends are looking for a couple more volunteers! Would you be able to take on the task of Secretary? This is not onerous as the Friends only have a formal meeting once a year so you would need to keep the minutes and draft the agenda.

The two projects the Friends will support this year will be the printing of a new edition of the Guide to Horningsea Church and some work to the Bailey stained glass window. The Guide was published about 20 years ago and we have run out of copies. It needs updating. We need to find someone to do the updating and then a printer. If you know anyone who would be interested in getting involved in the project or if you know anyone who might like to help please contact ldathorningsea @ gmail.com.

If you would like to become a Friend please contact Michael Harrison on mharrison5 @ btconnect.com
