Rapidly changing developments have led us to cancel this year's AGM scheduled for next week. This is disappointing on many levels, one being the opportunity to get together to share the highs and lows of the last year, discuss plans for this year and to give you the chance to ask questions.

To retain some of these benefits, next week we will issue a newsletter summarising the things we would have discussed at the AGM. If there is anything you would like to see included, or if there are questions you would have raised at the AGM please email them to friends@northlodgepark.org.uk by the weekend and we will endeavour to include answers in the AGM newsletter.
