Annual General Meeting

(1) Rod Paton of Nelson and Colne College should have presented the Mar.5th programme but was unable to appear. The committee put together an emergency programme at short notice and called it "Impromptu". All I can remember about it is that we began with one of Schubert's piano Impromptus, which seemed very apt. Since that time we have ensured that someone on the committee has a programme in reserve which could be brought out to fill an evening if a speaker fails to turn up.

(2) One item in Geoff George's programme was the just-issued record of "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" by David Bedford.
