On Fri 13 Oct 2017, the Liskeard Old Cornwall Society held their 89th Annual General Meeting in the Public Hall,

Longroom, Liskeard.   Sadly on this occasion their President and Honorary Secretary Mr Duncan Paul Matthews

was forced to stand down after fourteen years in office due to his wife’s declining health as was the Vice President

Mr Geoff Brown.    There were no nominees or volunteers to take up their Offices.


The Committee of ten were re-elected with one addition Mr Brian Oldham.


The next gathering of the Liskeard OCS will be at 2.30pm Fri 10 Nov 17 with an illustrated talk by Di Lawer with

her collection of WW1 Postcards.
