Minutes from the meeting on 13th April 2016

The meeting on 13th April 2016 started in an unusual way. Rosie Philpott (Secretary) made a presentation, on behalf of members, to Peter Hawkins (ex Chairman) of a photo book and an original drawing. The photo book recalls many DAN activities where Peter was involved. The drawing, by Rosie, shows Peter painting a piece of artwork.
