There really is a chill in the air now, but doesn’t the Park look lovely!
As you know we have set the date for the next AGM which is on Monday December 7th and will this year be held in the Rickyard. For those of you who have not yet seen the interior of the Rickyard, this is your opportunity.
We have a lot to discuss at the AGM. Walpole Friends has arrived at a very interesting time in its development and we hope to take you all along with us on this exciting journey.
The Committee has thought long and hard about the various things happening with the Manor, Gallery and Park and have decided it is time to make some very fundamental changes to both our constitution and our name. Let me explain.

We spoke at the last AGM about changing the name from Walpole Friends to something that more obviously encompasses the Manor & Gallery, and there was a general feeling that this would be a sound idea. Not least because it also differentiates us from Walpole Residents Association, with whom we often get confused.
