Banoffee pie leads to Winds of Change: MASG AGM report !
The MASG AGM was held on Wednesday the 30th of November. Over 30 people attended, including one visitor who travelled up from Northecote inspired by MASG’s work and wishing to see if he could set up a similar group in his suburb.
A MASG report of activities and achievements during 2010/11 was circulated and representatives of the 11 working groups briefly presented the highlights from their sections of the report.
