Subscriptions

Once again your Committee has decided that, in view if the paucity of activity in the last year, we can afford a further holiday from paying subscriptions. However if you feel like paying anyway this will be appreciated.

Annual General Meeting

This will be held via a Zoom link on Monday 6 December at 7pm.

Paul Nash will be our Zoom-Master: Please contact Paul if you’d like the link in order to join us. Paul’s contact details are in the member’s list.

Agenda

  1. Chairman’s Report
  2. Treasurer’s Report
  3. Election of Officers
  4. Any other business

To make a little more of the occasion the AGM will be followed by a ’Show & Tell’ (an activity in which the Guild has indulged in the past but whose terminology always makes me feel slightly uncomfortable) when members (in turn) might care to introduce a piece of printing or book that they prize, and talk briefly about it.
