-The Committee has agreed to hold a one day '​Northern Event' on Sunday 3rd November 2019 at Thirsk and Sowerby Town Hall. It will be a '​first'​ for MERG and its objective will be to provide an occasion to hold the AGM outside of London and act as a convening point for members interested in the Area Group concept. Initially three Area Groups are to be invited to set up demonstrations and discussions to exhibit what activities current Area Groups offer, to show how members may be helped by belonging to an Area Group and to encourage other Groups to be set up. A programme of presentations and guest speakers is also being planned.+
  
-All MERG members would be able to attend. It will not be open to the general public. Thirsk is situated on the East Coast Mainline and has ready access from the A1 and M6. The event is to be held on a Sunday when parking in the locale will be easiest. Local accommodation,​ such as the nearby Premier Inn, is available.+(This has previously been known as the proposed '​Northern Event'​)
  
-Whereas this event is primarily aimed at members in the north of the countryif it is successful then other events may follow in other areas.+Held on Sunday 3rd November 2019, 10.00 - 17.00\\  
 +If you wish to leave a comment about the meeting, please append to [[https://​www.merg.org.uk/​forum/​viewtopic.php?​f=32&​t=9876|this Forum topic]]thank you.
