OUR FIRST MEETING of the new programme was held at our usual venue on 13 September when Dave and his three friends from the Cottingham Folk Club entertained the seven of us there with an excellent musical evening when anything could and did happen. It was a shame that so few members were present to enjoy it.
OUR SUMMER OUTING was organised by our President Eddie Evans and Doreen on 20 June at Springhead Park where 20 members and friends had a very pleasant afternoon bowling followed by a splendid afternoon tea.
NO INCREASE IN SUBSCRIPTIONS AGAIN! In view of the Society's sound financial position, it was agreed at the Annual General Meeting that subscriptions for 2019/20 would remain at £15 per member. This is the eleventh year running that subscriptions have not been increased. New members pay nothing for the first year.
THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING was held on 17 May. Eddie Evans continued for another year as President, Richard Cook was elected as Chairman, John Butler as Treasurer and Dave Thomas as Past Chairman. There were no nominations for Vice Chairman or Secretary although a number of members agreed to take on specific aspects. The other Committee members elected were Roger Uglow, Penny Cook and Merle Skinner, leaving three vacancies.
MEMBERSHIP STATISTICS - At 31 March 2019 there were 40 members (10 couples and 20 singles) of the Society, compared with 47 members (13 couples, 21 singles) at 31 March 2018. There were 3 new members, 4 non-renewals, 3 resignations and 3 deaths during the year.
