Probably one of the more “exciting” AGM’s
The Lord Mayor had made it clear that given his increasing busy schedule it would not be possible for him to attend an evening function in late 1967.
He was asked if he would attend Cocktails only and replied that he would expect to attend a whole event. Thus Lunch was proposed and agreed for 3rd November.
After “discussion” it was proposed and seconded that Ladies be allowed to be present. An amendment was proposed and seconded that NO Ladies should be allowed to attend. The Amendment was put to the AGM 13 in favour – 13 against. The Master had the casting vote. He voted in favour of the Ladies being allowed to attend the Lunch.
