In December the Council invited our volunteers to a "Gift of Time Ceremony" and there acknowledged the time, over the year it amounted to 720 hours, our volunteers spend at the library helping people in their family history research. To show their appreciation the Council presented a Certificate of Appreciation for each volunteer to thank them for their selfless contribution to the community.
A big thank you to all the volunteers in our society who give endless hours each year to help the library provide a professional service in our Family History Room.
At the writing of this report we have held our February meeting where Jeff McGill gave a very interesting and informative presentation on his book "Rachel", Jeff's great-great grandmother, and the research that was undertaken to know her.
Our first course for the year is entitled "Beginner's" and will be conducted at the library on Saturday 15 April beginning at 10.45am. If you are interested contact Denise by Email on
Other courses we intend to conduct will be held at the library beginning at 10.45am on the following dates. The topics will be finalised at a later date;

Our Social Secretary is also looking to book more outings for us to enjoy during the year. If you think of an outing that is different and would be very interesting to do could you contact Denise by Email on
As President I'm looking forward to 2023 being a very successful year for all of us.
