Our next talk is on Monday 18 May
Our ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING will be held on Monday 18 May 2015 at Duke Street Church, Richmond, at 8pm. It will include elections to the committee and a proposal to increase subscriptions. Members should already have received the agenda, which was inserted in April’s members’ newsletter.
Our AGM will be followed by a talk, by Daniel Hearsum and Dr Robert Wood, on THE HEARSUM COLLECTION IN RICHMOND PARK. This will be followed by our end-of-season Party.
The Hearsum Collection, a charity based at Pembroke Lodge, collects and preserves heritage material relating to Richmond Park. The talk will give an overview of the Collection, with a particular focus on its forthcoming new exhibition at Pembroke Lodge, “Deer in the City”.
