Our AGM was an opportunity to reflect on the successes of 2014 and welcome our new committee for the coming year.

The evening began with a presentation to the winners of the Champion Shorts Competition.


Marika Wilson (author and illustrator) then took us on a journey through the conception and delivery of her new book Come Count With Me. Marika is a very entertaining speaker and soon had the audience in the palm of her hand.


Our new committee is currently planning the events and programs for 2015. If you have any suggestions please feel welcome to email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
