The Community Archives and Heritage Group (CAHG) held its 2020 AGM and Awards meeting on-line. It was an excellent use of the facility, starting with 60 participants and the Treasurer reported that using Zoom for meetings would reduce some expenses; he expected that some of the Budget for 2020 would be reallocated to website development and Digital Engagement.

The key meeting elements are summarised below and a one-page summary – necessarily only a sketch of the two hour meeting – is attached as a PDF for downloading below.
