42nd BLHA Annual General Meeting
Saturday 6th April 2019
Watlington House, 44 Watlington Street, Reading, RG1 4RJ
The venue for this year’s Annual General Meeting was suggested by members of the committee, and will give us the chance to see something of one of Reading’s oldest surviving houses, and to take a short walk around one its earliest and most interesting inner suburbs.
The programme will follow the usual format:
arrivaland refreshments in the hall in the garden behind the house itself from 11 a.m. with the AGM starting at 11.30. Before lunch, we will have a talk about the Mills Archive, which is based in the old house, followed by a visit.
During our walk after lunch, we shall be visiting the two churches with spires that dominate Watlington Street – Wesley Methodist Church and the Catholic Church of the Sacred Heart (formerly St. John’s Anglican Church).
AGM BUSINESS: We will endeavour to keep the business part of the day as short as possible to make more time available for social and cultural activities.
TRANSPORT: Watlington House is fifteen minutes’ walk from the railway station. Parking is at the end of the garden of the house, reached from South Street.
MOBILITY CONCERNS: The hall is accessible on the level, but the doors do not allow wheelchair access. Visiting the Mills Archive will involve climbing stairs.
DISPLAYS: For societies wishing to set up displays, the hall and adjacent car park will be open from 10 a.m.
LUNCH: Please bring a packed lunch, or you could visit one of several nearby pubs or cafes. Tea and coffee will be provided. There will be no charge for attending this meeting.
