AGM and Wine Tasting Quiz

Sunday 25th March 2018

AGM and Wine Tasting Quiz

The words “great fun” don’t always come to mind when thinking about Annual General Meetings, but the 56th AGM of the Hampton Wick Association held on 22 March 2018 was definitely an exception.

We started with the usual formalities. Treasurer Carol Dukes presented the accounts for the Association and The Friends of Hampton Wick Library. Chairman Mark Merrington gave a comprehensive report on the events, campaigns and news services run by the HWA throughout the year.

Elections were held: Mark Merrington, Fraser Wilson and Carol Dukes were elected Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer respectively and the rest of the committee was voted in en bloc: Nick Baylis, Jenny Bourne, Mark Buckley, Mehi Nabe and Catherine van de Broek. Chris Drayson continues to serve as Honorary President.

With the business of the AGM concluded we moved onto the Fun Wine Tasting & Quiz prepared and compered by Mark Merrington. We crossed continents, taking in South America, New Zealand, Germany and France, tasting some lovely wines, answering quiz questions, identifying wine-related quotations and picking the most apt tasting notes.

The worthy winner was Nick Baylis with Robin Bell a close runner-up.

We’re already looking forward to next year’s AGM!
