There has been 23 AGM’s held since The Cory Society first saw light of day on 17th December 1992. The EGM in 2016, held during the Isle of Wight Event in June, being the final business meeting of The Cory Society. Yet there was a gathering of Corys at Bramerton even before 1992. It was held in July 1983 and some Corys present on that weekend became founder members of the society. Read the Bramerton Press Cutting here

Our members have visited many interesting places with connections to Corys past and present and these events were duly reported in the newsletters. If you would like to take a look back to read about the places visited by members and friends of the society, the links below will take you there!

In later years, it became a tradition to pose for a group photo, much to the amusement of passers-by, particularly those enlisted to take the photo who then got presented with several more cameras – all different types!

Some of these group photos can be viewed here: People and Places

The Cory Society dissolved in 2016 but a few members continued meeting once a year as  the Cory Friends.

The full report of events will be in the summer newsletters- go to Newsletters
