Great turnout at Friends of Magdalen Green AGM


At an extremely well attended public meeting and AGM last night with around 80 in the audience (see audience right), Friends of Magdalen Green launched our new campaign and project for new play equipment for the well-used Roseangle playpark.     The Friends are working in partnership with the City Council to see what play equipment improvements can be achieved and will be launching a fundraising effort to assist.

The meeting also heard from Sandra Thomson, Managing Director of McGregor Balfour Textiles (see right), who gave an entertaining and informative talk about her jute journey and there was also a presentation from Anna Wowk of the High Mill Project.

Dr Angela Mehlert was re-elected Chair of the Friends, with Christine Thompson as Treasurer, Pat Orr as Membership Secretary and myself as Secretary.
