The Harwich Society has held its AGM and over 100 members packed the Navigator in Barrack Lane to hear that 2017 was another very successful year.
The team leaders for all of the Society’s visitor attractions gave very positive reports and those trustees who were up for re-election were re-elected unopposed. Particular thanks were given to Anna Rendell-Knights and Chris Hillion who were standing down as trustees and thanks was given from the floor of the meeting to all of the trustees for their hard work and dedication.
The highlight of the meeting was the illustrated talk given by Harwich Society vice chairman, David Whittle, on the Harwich ships that went to war, a fascinating history featuring Harwich ships that took part in World War I through those who took part in the Dunkirk evacuation through to the Saint Edmund which left the Harwich – Hook route to travel to the Falklands in 1982.
Harwich Society chairman, Colin Farnell, says, “2017 was a very busy and very successful year and our AGM reflected that. There is no better way to end the AGM than with one of David Whittle’s fantastic talks and, once again, he did not disappoint!”
