The 2017 AGM was held at St Hilda’s College, Oxford; a lovely sunny day with many Friends taking the opportunity to stay for the weekend, enjoying Oxford during the day and meeting for supper both Friday and Saturday evening. We look forward to holding a similar event in the UK for 2018; Note the date for the diary -
