AGM Confirmed and new dates for your fishkeeping diary

AMGK Annual General Meeting and Goldfish Table Show and Auction confirmed for Sunday 17th October 2021

It’s been a long time since the last face to face meeting, but, at last, we have set a date for the AGM on Sunday 17th October 2021 at the usual venue of St. Bartholomew’s Church Hall Brinklow Road, Binley, Coventry CV3 2DT. Alas, the Covid-19 is still with us, so it will be best practice in operation on the day with seating at 2.0m centres and hand washing gel at the ready and probably face masks too! We have had to wait many months to confirm availability of our normal venue, that has undergone a renovation since our last visit, however we are now told that it will be ready in time for us. Meeting will start at 1.00pm and close at 5.00pm sharp.

The meeting will primarily be an opportunity for those members, that have bred their fish this year, to bring some along and show them off to the rest of the membership and perhaps offer other members a chance to purchase some breeder’s surplus fish. Feel free to bring along the parent fish of any youngsters too so that the group can get a chance to hear the reasoning behind the choice of the breeding pair and how the youngsters have risen to the challenge and aspirations of the fish keeper responsible.

Some of the committee members, after many long years of committed and exemplary service to the Society ensuring the smooth running of our general day to day business, meetings and shows etc., feel that the time is right now for them to take more of a back seat, with regard to the Society’s behind the scenes activities. Therefore, We will be looking, perhaps, to the next generation of members to take up some of the potentially vacant positions to help in the smooth running of our society into the year ahead and the future. An agenda for the meeting will be issued to all members by email nearer the time.
