The Trust held its 151st Annual Meeting of Electors on Tuesday 8th August 2023, 7.00pm at the Greytown Fire Station on Main Street, Greytown.

This was a change of venue from the usual Town Hall and was well received by the 26 attendees.   Thank you to those people from the community that came along and to the Fire Brigade for allowing us to use their space.

The evening concluded with presentations to the six community grant funding recipients.  We would like to thank the representatives from those groups for taking the time to come along and for all the work they do in our community.
