Ann & Martin Presentation
Martin & Ann Presentation

A.G.M.
The Village Society Annual General Meeting was held on the 25th November. The Meeting, which was well attended, took a brief look back at the activities and successes of the past year as well as looking forward to the coming year’s Programme, which was formally published on the evening.
Records from the Treasurer highlighted a healthy and thriving Society with an increased membership of 110 and some record attendances having been achieved during the year.
 Apart from Carol Alexander, who was standing down after 12 years serving on the Committee, all of the 2016 Committee members were returned for another year with an open invitation from the Chairman for others to join at any time. The Chairman expressed his appreciation to all of the Committee members who had, over the past year, made significant and active contributions to the running of the Society and its events. An appreciation of all the ‘behind the scenes’ people was also noted.

 
The Bill Wood Memorial Shield Presentation (which followed the V.S. A.G.M.)
The Bill Wood Memorial shield is awarded to ‘an individual or couple who have made a significant contribution to the Community’. This year the event was hosted by St Mary’s church and the shield was presented by Andy Hodson on their behalf, to Ann and Martin Greaves.  The award was made in recognition for the many years of tireless work that they have put into Frampton even moreso as they don’t even live in the village. Martin is well known for his support to the church being Treasurer, Buildings Committee member and, as we all know, never ending grass cutter. Ann has been involved with the running of the Scout/Guide activities in the village for some 27 years encouraging and nurturing numerous youngsters in that time. She has also quietly been a much valued Pastoral carer. Between them they have also managed to fit in long distance walking and cycling challenges in order to raise many thousands of pounds for various charities.
The couple were presented on the evening with a personal commemorative Certificate and the Bill Wood shield which will remain on permanent display in the Village Hall.
