Reports of the Meeting

It was decided to have a treasurer and a secretary instead of the combined role of Administrator. The number of events has grown and so has the number of members. This has increased the workload on the administrator significantly.

Fees have been put up to cover costs

Full Members £26.50

Associate members £21.00

If members have any problems with paying these fees then they should talk to the chaplain who has access to the benevolent fund.

The costs of Refreshments are to be met by a plate put out at each suitable event. Members will asked to contribute what they think is approapriate.
