STOURPORT CIVIC SOCIETY: The meeting opened with the presentation of this years Civic Awards. Will Scott read the assessors report on the four nominated projects. He said each project was a "winner" but two were awarded a plaque and certificate, Burlish Park Primary School and The Swan. The Warfe was awarded a Certificate of Commendation. Mark Garnier then presented the awards to the winners. He commended them all on their efforts that so enhanced to quality of the town. After a short interval, when members and visitors enjoyed a glass of wine and nibbles, the AGM took place. In her report Pauline said it had been another year of negative and positive developments in the town. The entries for our Award showed there are still people willing to invest in the town. Of some concern was the lack of adequate toilet, car and coach parking facilities in a town wanting to attract tourists. The financial report showed a small deficit for the year and as a result there may be a need to raise subscriptions next year to £10. The committee was re elected with two changes. Richard Annis is to become Treasurer and David More will take over his duties as independent examiner. Two new committee members were also elected, Ann Taylor and Margaret Jenner.

On June 8, Heather Randall will give a talk entitled Owain Glyndwr in Worcester-Myth or Fact.

Meetings are held at the Elizabeth Mills Centre, New Street, Stourport, starting at 7.30pm admission £1.50 members £3 non members.
