The Verulam Angling Club Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 9 from 7.30 pm. The formal meeting probably won't last very long, so there will be ample time to ask questions of the various committees in the Club Forum afterwards.

The meeting is at the New Greens Hall, High Oaks, St Albans. Take the A1081 from St Albans to Harpenden, just past the Ancient Briton pub, turn left into Green Lane, second left into High Oaks.
