Welcome from the President – 2018

Hi, Pete Wright here and I will be president of the Field Society from September, 2018. I live at Linton Falls with my wife Peggy who you will know as Society librarian. 2019 will be an interesting year as it marks the 70th anniversary of the Society and we are planning a celebration of what we have achieved in both written and visual form. As you all know, the Society consists of several groups and many of us only attend one or two of these. This year why not try attending new group activity?

It would be good to have one or two of our celebratory events linked into the June Festival which would benefit from wider publicity. I was also thinking that we should have a social event to mark the anniversary and invite relatives of our founder members to attend. If you have any thoughts on this please let me know. We have already had one outing using the community minibus and it would be good if we were to use this when possible to reduce the use of fuel and environmental pollution. So, please remember, attend more groups and bring a guest who may be encouraged to join. Finally, if you attend a meeting elsewhere with a great speaker please tell us as we may wish to invite them.
