The Barnes Institute will be holding an AGM on Saturday, March 11, at 1.30pm. All are welcome to attend. As well as hearing the trustees' and auditor's annual reports, there will be an opportunity for everyone to look round the building, to see the progress of the renovation work thus far, hear about the immediate plans for the future and enjoy refreshments.

The Barnes has belonged to the residents of the village since 1905 and been in constant use by all age-groups in the community. Volunteers and nominations for trustees are always welcome. For more information, contact Carol Shield on 07767 156134.
