Agenda for the AGM
Following the online AGM last year the association has been running on a skeleton staff. There have also been significant changes at the Cathedral of which I’m sure you are all aware. This AGM is crucial in deciding the future of our association so I urge you to attend and have your say if you are able to. For those unable to attend, if you have issues to raise then do please email them to me at editor@canterburyoldchoristers.org.uk and I will do my best to bring them to the attention of the other members.
