Ferguson Club AGM and Members’ Weekend 2017
“What an enjoyable weekend”!
This was the most overheard comment at the end of the successful 2017 AGM/AMW
The Best Western Tiverton Hotel at Tiverton in Devon and Mike Thorne’s excellent Coldridge Collection were the centre pieces for this years hugely success weekend. Around 100 Ferguson Club members and their families attended over the weekend of April 7th-9th.
The hotel’s catering was second to none. The Friday evening buffet exceeded all expectations.
Saturday morning started with the formality of the AGM and ended with an excellent talk by Pippa Griffith – Curator of the Tiverton Museum of Mid Devon Life. Coaches took the majority to the Ferguson Coldridge Collection. Others walked to Tiverton’s Mid Devon Life museum.
The evening dinner and entertainment lived up to it’s reputation as being a truly wonderful social occasion. Entertainment was in all forms, from a local female comedy after dinner speaker to the annual raffle and auction. The food again was just excellent.
Sunday morning was a Steam train ride on the West Somerset Railway to Minehead and then coaches to Dunster for Sunday lunch.
A big thank you from all the Committee to John Upfold and Mike Thorne and their respective “teams” for putting on such a great weekend.
Next year Kevin Britton will be hosting the 2018 Annual Members Weekend and AGM. It will be over the weekend of 13-15th April 2018. (Details below……)
