I will be coming off the Committee at the next AGM in November, having served my term according to our Constitution, which leaves an opportunity
for someone else to take on the role of Group Coordinator.
Interesting job – contact with all Group Leaders and visit their groups when possible;
attendance at Committee Meetings, 2 hours once a month (not Aug or Dec); assist with annual production of prospectus; confirm accommodation
bookings; and a few other admin jobs. Keep the wheels turning between Groups and Committee. Some computer skills necessary. Come and visit
a Committee meeting – next one is 10am, Friday, 14 Sept at Agbrigg Community Centre, unfortunately, I shall be on holiday but the rest of
the Committee will make you very welcome, just let me know. If you would like to discuss please phone me on 01924 277924 or

History Group Trip To Eyam – 5 July cost £9.50
leaving from wyco at 9.30.
Eyam is the famous “plague village” in Derbyshire, whose inhabitants cut themselves off from their neighbours when a case of the plague
was found in one of the inhabitants. As a result, though Eyam’s mortality was dreadful, surrounding areas were mostly spared. One of the
members from Barnsley came to speak to the history group a couple of months ago about this well-known seventeenth century example of altruism.
