2024 AGM


The 2024 Annual General Meeting of the Friends of Vintage Trains was held on Sunday 24 March 2024 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. Chairman’s report
  4. Treasurer’s report
  5. Election of Committee and Officers
  6. Any Other Business

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 11.15 am. 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.

Unfortunately Michael Whitehouse was unable to join us to give his usual update to members, and we were unable to offer a depot tour after the AGM since the Locomotove Works were out of bounds due to ongoing work. We hope that both of these will be reinstated at the 2025 AGM.

The unapproved minutes of the 2024 AGM,  which are subject to approval at the 2025 AGM, and the formal notice of the 2025 AGM will be posted here when they are available.
