The annual meeting was well attended by members who were able to hear presentations from the Chairman and officers about the activities of the Society over the past year. The Grange remains very popular with visitors, with an average of 950 per month over the course of the year. Popular events were the May Open Houses, and the continuing “Cinema By The Sea” exhibition in the Museum. The Windmill was also well visited on Open Days with over 600 visitors this year, including some school parties. There was general support for the extension of the Windmill lease from BHCC when it runs out in 2021, though the details of the new lease have yet to be fully agreed. Concern was expressed about possible threats to the Kipling Gardens from reduced funding by the Council, and to the possible developments in the village including St Aubyns.

The Chairman, Chris Davidson, presented the plans for 2016-7, which include support for the Parish Council’s Heritage lighting scheme in the village, renovation of the old Nicholson Studio, currently used by St Margarets Primary School and the siting of a new Blue Plaque to Rev Hooker at The Grange. The Chairman also congratulated the team responsible for maintaining the Grange Gardens, which has received the first prize for the second year in a row for the best Community Garden in the Brighton In Bloom competition.
