HRA Annual General Meeting on 18 May 2018.

By | May 25, 2018

The HRA held its Annual General Meeting on 18 May 2018. This was a very successful event and provided an opportunity to hear about and debate current local issues including planning matters, the recent local elections, parliamentary boundary proposals, Riverside Park and the campaign to create a community council for Hersham.

It was agreed to maintain the same membership fee as last year and to make small donations from HRA funds to: Hersham in Bloom; Friends of Hersham Library; and the Hersham Youth Trust. Membership of the committee was agreed for 2018/9.

Following the formal business there was a fascinating talk about Hersham History from one of our members who works a volunteer at Elmbridge Museum. The talk focused on archived writings from a Hersham resident who described a walk through the village. The account painted a picture of Hersham between the wars and highlighted tensions between development and conservation which are still very familiar to us today.

Draft minutes and a copy of the Chairs report will be posted here on this blog in due course.
