Alfreton and District Cancer Research UK Committee held their AGM on Monday May 12 at the Greyhound in Higham.

They reflected on the fundraising events that they had held over the past year, in particular the annual bridge drive. This was held just last month and raised well over £1,650.

Plans for the coming year include a stall at the Party in the Park event in Alfreton, a quiz night and a casino evening.

Committee member Laelia Burch stood down from her post as minutes secretary, having held this post for 18 years.

She was presented with an azaelia plant in recognition of her hard work by Joyce Clifford, who is chairman of the committee.
