Meeting: 26 November 2009
History of Trumpington's War Memorial

There were around 35 participants in the Village Hall, when Arthur Brookes talked about the
concept of war memorials and the specific history of the Trumpington War Memorial. See the
edited version of the
history of the War Memorial.

The talk was preceded by the AGM, where Shirley Brown retired as Chaiman and was
thanked for her important contribution. Shirley continues as Programme Secretary, with
Howard Slatter as Chairman. Shirley outlined the activities in the last year and the programme
for 2010. Michael Hendy summarised the Group's financial position. Howard mentioned a
census research project which he is leading, where 4 volunteers are transcribing the local
census returns from 1841 to 1901. Andrew Roberts described progress with this web site.
