The AGM of The Hilaire Belloc Society took place on Saturday the 30th of November at 5.15Pm. It was held at at the Sidney Walter Centre in Worthing. All the existing officers, of the Society, were re-elected.
During the meeting we had the pleasure of listening to Sarah Maitland-Jones. Sarah's relative, Donald Maxwell, illustrated one of Belloc's books and she kindly brought one of his illustrations to the AGM. Most of Maxwell's thirty or more self-illustrated books were about voyages in (Europe, Mesopotamia, Palestine, and India) and later about the sights of Southern England. He also illustrated books by many other authors. including Rudyard Kipling.
In the evening much fun was had at the end of Belloc, Broadwood and Beyond end of project celebration!
