Sunday, June 9th Annual General Meeting 2019 at 2pm. Please note the new venue this year: Derek and Jenny no longer live in Whitchurch so we meet at Penny and Paul’s house: The Beeches, Pleck Lane, Kingston Blount, Oxfordshire. OX39 4RU. From Junction 6 on the M40 head north east on the B4009 towards Princes Risborough. After 2 miles, on reaching the middle of Kingston Blount village, turn left into Pleck Lane on a right hand bend. Head straight over the small crossroads (despite the confusing road sign here for The Rise); The Beeches is the next house on your left with a short uphill shared drive and a black garage door. If approaching from Chinnor on the B4009, Pleck Lane is the second turning on your right after the  traffic calming at the entrance to the village. Park judiciously on the left side of the drive or in the road. As usual informality will prevail and if time we hope to share any photos you care to bring along on a memory stick. Please contact Penny in advance if you are coming.
