Title: Annual General Meeting
Taken at: Chatsworth House, Bakewell, Derbyshire
 

In this, our 25th anniversary year, we  were delighted to be able to hold our AGM in this prestigious setting, with the use of Chatsworth's Conference facilities at our disposal. 

Following the morning's business and lunch, we  had a Textiles Demonstration by the House Seamstress,  Mrs Christine Thompson, who showed examples of the work undertaken by her department on the textiles within the House.
