We are pleased to report that 40+ BCS Members met online to take part in the Black Country Society's AGM 2021. The AGM was arranged by Society Secretary Andrew Homer and he did a great job in getting everyone online and managing the communication aspects of the evening. The AGM was hosted throughout by Society Chairman Malcolm Dick who has in the past 12 months helped the Society grow in numbers and introduced new Officers to the Committee.
Malcolm arranged for Andrew Lovett of the Black Country Living Museum to give an online talk about 'Forging Ahead' and the future plans for the Museum which is again open and on target to complete its expansion by Summer 2023. There will be great anticipation among all Black Country folk to see the 'town' style attraction open fully again.
The final contributor to the AGM was the President, Marlene Watson, otherwise known as 'The Black Country Wench'. Marlene looked splendid in her home setting and entertained us with her monologue about the committee, paid tribute to those committee members who are standing down and gave us a laugh with tales of her experiences when having her COVID (Covis) vaccine, meeting a government representative and getting married.
