The Chairman cuts the 60th Birthday Cake

The 60th Anniversary of the Dartmouth and Kingswear Society

was celebrated at its Annual General Meeting held in the Flavel, Dartmouth, on Tuesday 26th March.

In his annual report for 2018/19, Chairman Robert Brooke noted that membership was increasing. He reviewed the activities of the Society during the past year, noting in particular the pressure the Society had exerted, in cooperation with others, in an effort to get the Neighbourhood Plan restarted. The Society had run two very succesful social events, during the year.
