First of all, I want to let you know that Emma has stepped down from Presidential duties and, as Vice President, I am automatically stepping up until we have an AGM. In view of the uncertainty, the present Committee offered to stay in office and voted to focus on offering an achievable programme for members and to leave the next AGM until September 2021. If any one has any strong opinions about this please let me know. Obviously, the constitution doesn’t cover pandemics and we are just trying to do the best we can.
As a Society I’m sure we want to thank Emma for all her hard work over the many years she has been involved with the Committee and look forward to eventually seeing her as a member of the Society. Clive will be taking over the full responsibility for the website.
The finances are all up to date and Liz has kindly finalized them for the year’s end so we can start afresh for our 2020-2021 season.
The membership subscription will be reduced to £25 for the season and will include tea / coffee when we eventually resume indoor meetings – this will be paid by electronic transfer (or cheque if necessary) as guidelines advise against the use of cash at the moment. More information about this to follow.
If you would like to be involved with the Committee activities please let me know as we still need some of the roles to be filled. An attached sheet of information is below (actual meetings are still limited to 6 people).
The booklet will be a PDF newsletter and forwarded to all renewing members.
