Annual General Meeting
The Friends' AGM this year will be taking place on Wednesday 26 February at Wanstead Golf Club, Overton Drive, E11 2LW, commencing 7:30.
The business part of the meeting, which is expected to take less than half an hour, will be followed by a guest speaker. This year professional photographer Geoff Wilkinson, of the Eightyfour Gallery in Nightingale Lane, will be talking about photography in Wanstead Park, using images from the group's last photographic competition as examples. Geoff is well-known locally: as well as running his gallery he teaches photography and has a regular feature on the Wansteadium website.
In addition to Geoff's talk, a new book by committee member Richard Arnopp will be launched at the meeting. Entitled "Wanstead and its Park", it is a new edition of an Edwardian classic by Oliver S Dawson, with contemporary photographs and other illustrations. The book also includes a fascinating newly-researched account of Dawson's life as well as comprehensive notes on his text.
