Good to see you again! Members meet in person for AGM at familiar venue… and we were on YouTube too!

This year’s AGM was notable perhaps as much as anything for the fact that members were able to join us in person at Lenham Community Centre.

After holding last year’s event in virtual form, using Zoom technology, it was good to get back to our regular venue and catch up with CPRE Kent friends, as well as deal with the more formal matters.

The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic meant some chose not to join us, so a YouTube link was set up for them to follow proceedings, vote and ask questions – 21 people used that option. With 24 signing in at Lenham, along with five staff members, we hit the half-century on the nail – a wholly creditable effort given still-trying circumstances.

County director Hilary Newport delivered her annual report, chairman John Wotton gave his take on affairs and Lee Dance, head of water resources at South East Water, gave a speech entitled Can Nature Based Solutions help with our Water Challenges?.

As ever, a delightful lunch and cheery conversation rounded off another wholly successful AGM.

We will publish the AGM minutes on this website in due course.

It was great to be back at Lenham…
