Old Buckenham Social and Wine Circle

Time for the AGM before talk
A review of the last year's activities from chairman David Sallnow started off the AGM on Thursday 8 November. He reported that it had been an active twelve months with many good speakers. Overall the club had made a small profit and it was suggested that the equally small charge of £1 per meeting  would continue for the next year. All the existing officers were re-elected en bloc. There was some discussion on how to increase the membership during 2013 as an attractive series of talks had been arranged.
The AGM was completed within half an hour and was followed by a talk on 'Going green' by local resident Richard Lindner. As Richard has installed many energy-producing pieces of equipment around his house and garden he could speak from the actual experience of their performance. Amongst other items he has two wind turbines, an array of photovoltatic panels and a ground source heat pump as well as being the driver of an electric car. During a question and answer session the audience asked about their efficiency and were interested to hear how this compared with the predicted performance.

The next meeting would be 'party time' on Thursday 13 December including the now traditional fish and chip supper. The evening will start at 7.45pm in the Old Buckenham Church Rooms.
