This was the 21st Guildford Arts' summer exhibition Yvonne Arnaud Art and attracted more than 2000 visitors, including so many children that the quiz had to be reprinted as it was so popular.
Visitors were very complimentary about the exhibition, having been confronted at the entrance by Gilbert Whyman's more than life-sized welded steel Don Quixote and Sancho Panza which have been despatched to Bamber Gascoigne's orchard at West Horsley Place in readiness for delighting the opera-goers next summer. Bamber opened the exhibition with a witty speech and with his usual attention to detail and interest in the arts.

2. Approval of the minutes of AGM held on 14 July 2015: approved without opposition
3. Matters arising: there were no matters arising
4. Chairman's Report: The Chairman said he would begin his report by concentrating on the largest significant development during the previous year – that was the development of the arts EGG and the enormous amount of work that John O'Keefe had done to bring this potential benefit to the point of launch later in the autumn. John's devotion to this project deserved the highest praise. It went to the very heart of the objective that wrapped round the Guildford Arts logo – promoting the arts.
