WM Area committee lunch at Barnt Green

Former WM Area Chairman, Stephanie Faroqui, who also chaired the 2017 AGM Steering Group, hosted a lunch on 7 August at Barnt Green for committee members and those who organised events for this year’s AGM, held in Birmingham in May.  Stephanie took the opportunity formally to thank Carol Austin for her two years as acting Chairman before giving a short résumé of the AGM.  She also thanked all those who had contributed to what had been a very successful event, especially those who had organised visits in the region and, in particular, the Make Your Mark Young Arts competition and exhibition at the RBSA..
