The inaugural meeting of our Group yesterday (25 Feb 2015) was an outstanding success.
We were hoping for an attendance of around fifteen enthusiasts but were delighted when our number grew to thirty eight and, with Neil Chippendale and Karen Richardson from Hornsby Library, our tally of attendees reached forty. There were also several apologies and the inclement weather probably kept a few more people away. It was gratifying to see that most of those in attendance signed up for membership of the group.
After an introduction by Neil Chippendale from Hornsby Library our Group’s coordinator, Coral Shand, took the chair. Following a discussion of the Group’s format and purpose/functions/activities Coral involved all present in an activity to determine priorities for future meetings of the Group.
Thank you to all who ventured out in the rain for our first meeting, your enthusiasm and contributions to our discussions yesterday have given us many ideas to get started on a draft program of activities for the year. Thanks also to those present who graciously agreed to have their photos taken for this blog post.
We are indebted to Neil, Karen, Hornsby Library and Hornsby Council for their support of this venture.
