Minutes of the meeting held on Nov 1st 2017.
Mrs Hazel Hearne was in the chair & welcomed 13 members.
APOLOGIES were received from Doris Armsby, Sheila Smith, Mavis Smith, Marjorie Stevens, Anita Horgen, Audrey Hudson & Gypsie Duncan.
MINUTES of the previous meeting were read & signed.
CORRESPONDENCE. A card was received from Mrs Wendy Quadling thanking everyone for the flowers & card following her recent operation.
There will be 2 birthdays in Dec, so Mrs Horgen will bring cards to the restaurant. There will be no raffle, but members were reminded to all bring a prize in Jan.
Jan ROTAS were arranged to avoid doing business during the meal.
TEAS. Jean Carter & Yvonne Self
DOOR & RAFFLE. Hazel Hearne & Anita Horgen.
Mrs Cooper reported that several dates had been filled for the 2018 programme, but was unsure if a speaker would be needed for Jan. Mrs Self offered to do a floral demonstration, which members gladly accepted.
Mrs Elsey will be collecting money for the Dec meal during refreshments, & menu choices must be selected.
There being no other business, the AGM followed.
TREASURER’S REPORT. Mrs Elsey circulated copies of the annual accounts. Although these showed a slight profit, she suggested that an increase in subs would be beneficial. Members agreed to raise them to £15.00 for 2018, but teas & raffle will remain the same.
SECRETARY’S REPORT. Mrs Lankfer said that the club has a membership of 23, with an average attendance of 18. We had had a varied programme of talks & demonstrations and two fun quizzes. The events committee had organised some nice social evenings and a summer outing which was a mystery tour. We have had a successful year under the firm leadership of Mrs Armsby.
Mrs Hazel Hearne then thanked all the officers for their hard work & support during the year.
Mrs Armsby had agreed to stand again, and was unanimously approved by everyone.
Mrs Gillian Smith proposed that all other officers should be re-elected en bloc, but as a few of them would prefer to stand down, this was deferred. However, after a discussion, no new volunteers could be found, so the remaining committee agreed to stand for one more year as proposed.
The raffle was won by Gillian Smith, Yvonne Self, Carol Thulbourne & Claire Lankfer.
The meeting ended at 9pm.
Claire Lankfer (secretary)
