Tudor Food:  Good to see so many people at the AGM. Jan Black gave us a great talk about English Cookery in Medieval and Tudor times and the samples she brought for us to taste were wonderful!

Many thanks to Rod Ffoulkes who has decided to stand down as the Chair. Fortunately, he will be staying on as a committee member. Rod set up the group in 2011 and has played a key role from the beginning. It is great that we can continue to have the benefit of his enthusiasm and experience.

We welcome new members to the committee, Steve Allen and Lynn Hills.
