Annual General Meeting
The branch AGM was held at the Ken Bridge Hotel on January 21. Kinder weather than 2018 ensured a very healthy turnout. In a change to the planned speaker who had to, unfortunately, pull out, Alistair McGugan (SNH) gamely stepped in and delivered a thought-provoking and characteristically humorous talk about deer and how they fit into modern Scotland. The £20 raffle prize of a Galloway red hind stalk was won by Chris Strawbridge. The branch presented Glen Heggs and Keith Snow each a painting by local artist Patrick Laurie as a token of gratitude for serving respectively as Chairman and Secretary for over a decade.
