The WATCH AGM took place on Saturday 17 October for the first time via video conference. The packed agenda, see below, saw engaging input from Linda Woodhead and a robust discussion of our Strategic Plan.

We are still collating discussions and feedback, and editing video. As soon as that is all ready this page will be updated. In the meantime you can see the agenda below and access the AGM Documents.
