About 40 members attended the Glebe Society’s AGM on Sunday 25 August, in the beautifully renovated Glebe Town Hall. They were welcomed by our President, John Gray, who pointed out that the meetings in 1969 which led to the establishment of the Glebe Society were also held in our Town Hall.
John started proceedings by acknowledging the passing of three good friends of the Society in the past year: John Holt (Blue Wrens Group), Peter Pockley (science broadcaster) and John Dengate (folk singer).
