Friends of Newtown Road Cemetery AGM
Venue: St. Francis de Sales Church Hall, Warren Lane, Newbury, RG14 6NH
Tuesday, October 22, 2019
19:30 - 22:00

The friends of Newtown Road Cemetery AGM will take place on Tuesday 22nd October 2019 at St. Francis de Sales Church Hall from 7.30pm.

As well as the business side of the AGM which, as always, we will keep as short as possible, we will have a talk, given this year by Cllr. Chris Foster who, as mentioned elsewhere in the newsletter is an entomologist, which is the study of insects. As a new member of the Nature Group Chris has been spending time in the cemetery to find the answers to such questions as why there is a greater diversity of insects in Newtown Road Cemetery compared to Shaw.

Organiser: Maureen Hudd
