Kerry Birch proposed and Hilary Lloyd seconded this. All were in agreement.

After the business part there were refreshments and time to socialize followed by the drawing of the raffle.

A talk on the Rogues of Ryde was presented by Linda Scurr and Simon Dear, which was greatly received. Their information on the ‘offenders’ was mainly from the newspapers of the day, with some names cropping up more than once.  The more serious crimes saw the offenders sent to Winchester Assizes for trial, imprisonment with hard labour was the sentence for the worst prisoners
