About The Bramerton Society

Anybody who lives in Bramerton is automatically a member of the Bramerton Society.  This organisation has been in existence since 1996 and was set up with a focus on planning and conservation. Today the emphasis is broader, and the emphasis is on providing opportunities for residents meet one another for social gatherings.

Each year the Society holds an annual general meeting (AGM) which is open to all residents. At this meeting there are elections for the posts of chair, secretary and treasurer, and for other members of the committee. At the AGM the chair presents an account of the past year and the treasurer presents the accounts. Following the AGM in April 2016 the chair is Jane Wheeldon the secretary is Jane Edwards and the treasurer is Jennie Marshall

Autumn quiz night

The ever popular autumn quiz night was held  at the village hall on Friday 27th November 2015. Seven teams packed the hall, and attempted to

answer questions on a range of topics. A great meal of beef, beans and jacket potatoes was served  during the break, with cheesecake for pud. The results were very close with only 15 points between all seven teams, but it was Chaos theory (led by Geoff Shaw, bottom right above) who went home with the first prize of a splendid box of chocs. A great evening out and many thanks to all the team for preparing the food and to Keith for acting as question master.
