East Anglian Catholic History Society AGM 2018

Today the East Anglian Catholic History Society (the diocesan historical society of the Diocese of East Anglia) held its third Annual General Meeting in the chapel of Oxburgh Hall, by the kind invitation of Sir Henry and Lady Bedingfeld. Prof. John Morrill, Chairman of the Society, shared the sad news of the recent death of Dr John Ashdown-Hill, who was a member of the Society and delivered the talk at last year’s AGM. I was re-elected Secretary of the Society, while Prof. Morrill was re-elected Chairman. A new committee was elected, with one new member. I gave the Society an update on the search for the body of St Edmund. After the AGM, John Saunders (Chairman of St Edmund’s Parish History Group, Bury St Edmunds), spoke about the challenges of setting up a parish history group, and told the story of the parish history group at St Edmund, King and Martyr, Bury St Edmunds, which has accomplished an immense amount of work since its establishment in 2006.
