As a member who has enjoyed visiting two wonderful AGMs in the past, in addition to the pleasure of meeting other family members, it ihas been so good to have the opportunity of looking through the numerous family trees pinned up around the AGM meeting room.
In response to suggestions from members we have arranged for our Annual Gathering to be held in Derbyshire. It will be a one-day event on Saturday 22 October 2005 and the venue will be Tissington Village Hall.
The Guild of One Name Studies held its Annual General Meeting and Twenty-Fifth Anniversary this weekend, 2nd - 4th April, 2004.
This year we entered the competition for the best Society Journal for the first time in the Category A section. The latter is intended for the larger Societies, such as our own, as opposed the smaller, individually run groups. Roy Stockdill, the Editor of the Guild's Journal in announcing the result reported that The Bunting Society Journal was third placed. Well done Alan and Mary.
