September meeting

Tuesday was our annual AGM. A slightly more formal night but luckily we had already introduced the new committee at the EGM in July. Reports were read, balance sheets poured over and then Ann gave flowers to Eileen and Val. The main issue at AOB was the announcement of the resignation of PH. This was met with great concern and after quite a heated discussion, Val and Ann will meet together and send a formal letter to HQ. Members signed up to the forthcoming day school and Saturday was picked as the most popular date for the trip to Harrogate. Some places still available for both events.002

I now publish our newsletter…..
