Broadwater Community Association AGM

Broadwater Community Association AGM

 

Broadwater Community Association holds its Annual General Meeting on Saturday September 21st in the Parish Rooms, Broadwater at 7.30 pm.

Chairman Brian Fullick will update the meeting on progress on plans for the Northbrook College refectory to become the new Community Centre.

After the formal proceedings former  Arundel Mayor Joe Hayes  will show the DVD which due to a technical hitch failed to be shown at his previous talk.  Joe said it’s “guaranteed to work this time.”

Joe Hayes was the first American mayor of Arundel.  In 2006 Joe as mayor took the town’s ceremonial maces and other treasures in a canvas bag to be valued on BBC’s Antiques Roadshow at Arundel Castle.

The three ceremonial maces and other items were valued at £500,000 and Joe returned to the council offices with a police escort. The Radio Times described the valuation as a “jaw dropping moment” and “the most expensive valuation ever seen on the Roadshow.”

Tea and biscuits will be served.
