Thanks to Brian and Liz Berks for their organisation, we were able once again to make the AGM an event worth attending.
At the Priory of Mesnil St. Martin at Montaut de Villeréal (47), members and guests were able to enjoy a fine catered lunch and then hear a Chopin concert by the owner of the Priory and concert pianist and teacher, Emmanuel Laloë-Ferrer.
This was followed by the lighter touch of Stanley Hanks with songs about London and from his native Costa Rica.
