Welcome to the AGM. Thank you all for all of your support and involvement in the past year;really looking forward to the next 
Lights please let Anne Haigh know tonight if you would like to order a light (small portable battery operated light).
Membership renewal is still happening now if you haven’t already; please get a form from Anne who can also answer any queries you might have. We really hope that you will all feel able to join again.
Hopefully some progress has happened on your Tolkien pieces over the summer and we will have some pieces tonight, but there is still time if not. I still haven’t started mine but am intent now on the December meetingSee Clare if you need any help or advice and if you can finish pieces by the end of the year would be perfect.
Hoard Hangings: the gallery with the hangings opens at Birmingham Museum on Friday 17th October. There is a VIP evening on 16th October. Trisha James, who co-ordinated the project has been invited and invited Clare as her 'plus one'. There is an open evening on Tuesday 21st October to which all those who took part in making the hangings have been invited. The museum wants to take a group picture.
We hope you enjoyed the DVD library those of you who borrowed something it is a continuing resource so please make use of it.
Please send items for Branchline  to marionplumb@sky.com
Thank you to all who went to the Library on October 4th. Those of us who went to Heather’s wedding had a wonderful time and Heather and Simon made a lovely couple. The bouquet and bridesmaids flowers lot of us had made looked brilliant. Sure Heather will have photos to show us in due course. Please keep supporting the library events if you can.
Workshops Please see Margaret if you would like to sign up for the Greta Fitchett workshop on 29th November. If you haven’t been to a workshop yet they are really good fun and not a bit intimidating.
Our next meeting in November will include a stitching activity led by Tina Francis. It is the silver raffle bag that night, so silver themed contributions please if you can. 
Advance notice for the Christmas Party on 8th December as well as mulled apple and Christmas treats we will be having a talk on Tactile Books. We will need to start this promptly at 7.30 because of the speakers train times
