AGM April 2024

At the AGM of the Hertford Civic Society held on April 10th Jan Goodeve was elected to lead the Society in succession to Malcolm Ramsay.

Jan was until recently a Councillor on both East Herts District and Hertford Town Councils, She was the executive member for planning most recently and prior to that for housing.  In her working life she worked for UBS, a global investment bank, and more recently for a local events agency.  She has always lived in Hertfordshire and in Hertford since 1990, her two children who are now in their 20s attended local schools.  Jan is honoured to be entrusted with this role.

Malcolm was first elected Chair in April 2018. His tenure, of course, included ensuring the survival of the Society through the Covid epidemic and consequent lockdowns when innumerable meetings and talks on “Zoom” had to provide a substitute for face-to-face meetings.

The AGM was also noteworthy for the standing down of Andrew Sangster following over half a century of service to the Society.
