ABERGAVENNY ATTRACTIONS ASSOCIATION. I ANNUAL PUBLIC MEETING. I SPLENDID YEAR'S WORK FOR THE TOWN. The first annual public meeting in connection with the Abergavenny Attractions and Improve- ment Association was held in the Corn Exchange on Thursday evening, Councillor P. Telford presiding over a good attendance. The General Secretary (Mr. Geo. Harris) presented his report, as follows General Secretary's Report. Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen,—A thoroughly comprehensive report of the continu- ous and varied operations of the Association during the past 12 months would, I fear, occupy. too much of your time. I do not propose, there- fore, to enter into any very great detail, but to gi ve, for the information of the public, a general outline of the work done. It is scarcely necessary to say that the Associ- ation has had a verj busy year, and I believe, on the whole, a successful year. They have- demonstrated what can be done by a public- spirited body working for the benefit of the town, and have laid the foundations of a still more successful and useful existence in the future. With all due modesty, we may claim that no organisation at Abergavenny has ever undertaken such a task as the Association set out to. accomplish. Probably many members themselves little thought when the Association was founded that it would develop into such an all-embracing movement, involving continual work all the year round. What the Association has accomplished could not have been carried out but for the zeal of a number of active mem- bers who have given of their time and energy- When I say that during the year we have held quite 70 meetings it will be realised that much time has been taken up. There are a number of members who have attended the majority of these meetings, besides giving assistance in other directions. It would be invidious to particu- larise, but I think it should be placed on record that the existence of the Association is primarily due to Councillor Telford. Some of us had talked about the idea, but talk is not much good » without action. To Councillor Telford belongs the proud distinction of being the father of the Association, for he initiated it and on his own responsibility called the first meeting. That was not very promising, owing to the lack of. public interest, but Councillor Telford was not daunted, and he called another meeting, as the result of which the wheels of progress were set K in motion.
