Annual Report

A huge thank you for all the reports received for inclusion in the 2018 Annual Report, it was noted at the ACPM that several reports had been omitted; a list of these has been made ready for 2019. Any help to compile the report would be very welcome. Graham Barge once again printed our 20 paper copies for which we are most grateful.
