    To all members, please join us at The National Archives for our Annual General Meeting.

    We will welcome you at 6.30pm for a drink with the committee, followed by the AGM at 7pm.

    After the AGM we are delighted that Paul Davies, Operations Director for The National Archives and a resident of Kew, will talk about the history of The National Archives' site. Previously known as Kew Meadows, it played an important role in both World Wars before the arrival of the Public Record Office almost 40 years ago. Paul will talk about the 1990's extension of what has now become the National Archives and the internal re modelling of some of the  public access areas, and will bring us up to date with what has been happening with the neighbouring former Inland Revenue site.

    We look forward to seeing you then.
