The March Society held its annual general meeting knowing that the potential absence of a new treasurer meant that the decade-old civic society was at risk of closing down.
At the meeting, however, a new treasurer and another person stepped forward and joined the committee.
Chairman Jennifer Lawler thanked the committee and everyone who had participated in talks and events of the society over the past ten years.
She outlined some of the activities including March Heritage Open Days and spoke of some of the future projects.
Afterwards, Edna Stacey gave an interesting interpretation of the 1600s map of the Manor of Doddington which included March. The map shows plots of land and houses with the names of the then owners. A copy of the map is on display at March Museum.
