Club AGM

Due to the pandemic this was the first AGM since the Government instigated the first lockdown in March 2020.  The Chairman reported that the club had had two successful meetings since re-starting and that members and visitors had enjoyed both meetings. The Treasurer presented two sets of audited accounts (one for the year to 31st March 2020 and the other for two years to 31st March 2022) which outlined the club’s current finances.

Members were advised that the current costs of speakers and their mileage costs have increased substantially and therefore it was necessary to increase the subscription rate. All committee members agreed to stand again and were re-elected en-bloc.

The Chairman thanked the committee and members for their hard work and loyalty to the club over the past couple of very difficult years.
