This year's Annual General Meeting was held held on 1st October. There was a poor attendance from member societies, but there was discussion of possible ways of raising funds
to support future festivals, and the proceedings were enlivened by a performance of The Lighthouse Keeper's Daughter by members of Tenterden ODS.
