May 17th 2007: Third AGM and Fairford’s Railway

The Society held its third Annual General Meeting at the new venue of Fairford Primary School as the Community Centre is undergoing its refurbishment. The Chairman and Treasurer gave their reports after which the Committee was voted in for another year. The Treasurer divided his report into funds belonging to the Society and funds relating to the Local Heritage Initiative grant. He reported that, as far as the Society’s funds were concerned, expenditure had exceeded revenue and a vote was called for to increase subscriptions from £2.50 to £3. The vote was carried.

After the business meeting Colin Moulden gave a fascinating account of the Fairford Branch Line and its place in railway history. Well illustrated by some excellent photographs, many taken by Colin himself, the talk was very well received as it brought back many memories to some of the Fairfordians in the audience!
