At our 28th AGM, on Saturday 5th November, Matt Fattorini was elected chairman, with Carol Lane becoming honorary secretary. Carol replaces Paul Baker who understandably wishes to limit his role to membership secretary following his recent illness. Peter Warrilow continues his longstanding service as honorary treasurer. The committee welcomes Rosemary Jewel-Clarke to its ranks but otherwise remains unchanged.  27 members attended the meeting, when we were treated to an excellent lecture by Dr. Jane Bradney: “‘In the Enemy’s Quarters’: Humphry Repton and the Picturesque Controversy.” Many thanks to those who attended, to Dr. Bradney and to the Leamington Tennis Court Club for allowing us use of the venue and very good tea and cakes afterwards.
