The  Foden Society AGM 9th November 2013

The Foden Society AGM was once again held at Sandbach School. This is the 7th year the AGM has been held at the school and all agree that the parking available on site for Foden Vehicles and geographical location make it an ideal venue. The weather was kind and this gave opportunity for members to take photographs of the vehicles on display.

This years speaker was Mr Adrian Graves who was Fodens' Press and Publicity Manager in the 1970's at the time of financial difficulties for the company and the launch of the Fleetmaster range. On behalf of the membership, the committe thank him for an interesting and inforamtive talk.
