CHAIRMAN’S NOTES 
Welcome everyone to the 2017/18 season of lectures, study days and visits, and a special welcome to our new members. This year we have 30 new members, bringing our total membership to just short of 400, which makes us one of the biggest societies in the country. This is my first message as Chair of The Arts Society Cavendish, or Cavendish Arts as I suspect we will soon begin to think of ourselves as. Work is ongoing to update our website and literature to reflect our new identity. I trust members will bear with us whilst this work is completed.

I must begin by saying a special word of thanks to the two retiring members of your Committee. Liz Wake has organised many excellent and memorable visits for us for the past four years. Peter Stubbs has led the Society for the last four years with style, elegance and considerable energy, considering that at various times during his term of office (which he agreed to extend into a fourth year at the Committee’s request) he combined the role of Chair with that of Treasurer and Study Day Organiser. Peter will now become Vice President with Kim Staniforth standing down from this role. I have no doubt that Peter will provide the same advice and support to me in that role that I know he valued from Kim. I am sure you all would wish to join me in thanking Liz, Peter and Kim for their work on our behalf.

So now we can look forward to the 2017/18 programme of lectures, study days and visits. You may also notice a gap in our programme of events. This year we are not planning a trip abroad. Last year our planned trip to Madrid had to be cancelled because too few people expressed an interest. Your Committee debated long and hard as to whether to propose a trip for this season but our collective view was that there are such an abundance of trips already available that there was not sufficient demand for one organised by Cavendish Arts. If you have views on this or any other matters relating to the running of the Society then please get in touch with me or any other member of your Committee.

JOHN SCAMPION
