2023 AGM


The 2023 Annual General Meeting of the Friends of Vintage Trains was held on Saturday 18th March 2023 at the Tyseley Working Mens Club, 573 Warwick Road, Tyseley, Birmingham B11 2EX (directly opposite Tyseley Locomotive Works).

The agenda was:

  1. Apologies for absence
  2. Minutes of previous AGM
  3. Chair’s report
  4. Financial report
  5. Election of Committee and Officers

The Annual General Meetings are your opportunity to have your say in the running of the Friends and we look forward to seeing as many members as possible at our AGMs.

The doors opened at 10.30am, with tea/coffee and biscuits being served; the AGM started promptly at 11.00am. Membership cards had to be shown upon entry. We asked members who wish to raise Any Other Business to do so in writing before the meeting, either via email to Secretary@FriendsofVT.org.uk or in writing to the Secretary, Friends of Vintage Trains, 670 Warwick Road, Tyseley, Birmingham B11 2HL. The Tyseley car park was not be available but there is on-road parking nearby and limited parking at the Club which might be available on the day.

Following the formal meeting there was a brief presentation from Michael Whitehouse on developments at Vintage Trains and a brief presentation from Simon Edmunds on the Sutton Park Miniature Railway project followed by the opportunity for informal discussions in the club bar.

The unapproved minutes of the 2022 AGM (PDF, 154 KB) are available.

We thanks those members who completed the following brief Expression of Interest form to help with our planning.

    I would be interested in a depot tour after the meeting should this be offered:
