SOCIETY AGM at KELMSCOTT MANOR
RECENT AGM at Kelmscott Manor, 23rd September 2017

Society members met at Kelmscott Manor, Lechlade, Gloucester, to enjoy a day of fellowship and to catch up on Society news.  Our first event was a visit to the manor house, home of William Morris and furnished with beautiful items in his famous Arts and Crafts style.  This gem of a house is not well known so members were delighted with the opportunity to explore it and to appreciate the medieval references and quality of furnishings which so inspired Lawrence.

Following lunch, we strolled to the Morris Memorial Hall, venue for our AGM.  There has been so much to report this year and you can read the Minutes and the Accounts in the Members’ Area of our website. 

The curator of Kelmscott Manor, Kathy Haslam, gave an illustrated talk on “Morris and The Book” in which she described Morris’s love of the written word, books and illustrated manuscripts and linked this with the similar enthusiasms of Lawrence.

Our Autumn Newsletter 118 is now available and can be viewed in the Members’ Area.  Members can read a resume of our Society year including recent visits around London and to Portsmouth and details of our excellent 2018 Symposium programme.
