AGM Feedback

We had such a lovely turnout at the recent 40th anniversary of Edgemead celebrations and would like to thank the public for their support. The guest speakers entertained us with a number of interesting stories from the history of Edgemead and we are sure it was enjoyed by all. We’ve made the slide show available for download (link below). A special thank you to Andre van Wilgen our desktop publishing guru who spent countless hours assembling the slide show with information supplied from helpful sources.

We’d also like to announce the new committee members for 2012/2013. In no particular order:
Lorraine Mc Murdo
Rocco Du Plessis
Judy Kidwell
Heather-Lee Beckley
Andre Van Wilgen
Carl Witten
Jeremy Beckley

If there is anyone who is still interested in joining the committee, please contact us. We are also looking for an editor to take over the Edgemead News.
