Description AGM and Members Meeting
We stay on Home Farm that backs onto the Village hall so it is only a short walk to the hall.
In spring we have enjoyed watching the newborn lambs at this onion-growing farm.
Cardington village is closely connected to the Whitbread brewing family.
The enormous airship sheds close by still dominate the landscape, once home to the doomed R101, which crashed in 1930 in France.
Meet Details Hall is available for Friday evening from 7.00pm for a general get-together at about 7.30 and Saturday from 10.00am including the evening for a dance at 7.30pm. There are many good walks in the immediate area including R101 airship memorial in the graveyard.

The Home Counties AGM begins in the village hall at 2.30pm for 3.00pm, followed by a hot drink before the Members Meeting and then an American Tea at about 5.30pm before for the evening dance. DO NOT forget to bring your membership cards.

Items/nominations for the AGM to be sent to the Secretary
