It was the Redruth & District branch of MK AGM last night.
There was a brief business part to the meeting where we received a report from the retiring chairman, Lawrence Molton, and then elected offides for the coming year.
Following the business part we welcomed guests to a social event - A Cornucopia of Cornish Cinema. We were treated to several short films all made in Cornwall. May thanks to Rod Toms for providing the show and for keeping this archive of films ranging from wing walking at St Austell to Will Coleman's award winnin, Horn of Plenty.
I was elected as chairman, with new officers Loveday Jenkin (vice chairman) and Chris Lawrence (treasurer).
Over the coming year I hope to coordinate our efforts to build on the sound economic position that the branch has been able to build over the last year and to increase our active mebership.
One of the most urgent tasks that faces us is the selection of a candidate for the Westminster elections in 2015 - a task that will be shared with our Camborne and Hayle MK neighbours.
Many thanks to Lawrence Molton for all the hard work that he has put in during a Cornwall Council election year.
If you live in or around Redruth, and would like to see a better deal for Cornwall, please get in touch.
