The Treasurer Kate presented the accounts and these showed a balance of £882 in the Bank.This is a reduction of £200 from 2014. The drop can be accounted for due to the Cricket Club increasing their subs last year by £90 which was paid out of the account after the club subs had been collected and the party cost the club £200 after members share had been paid. A discussion was held about this but was put into abeyance until later in the year. The accounts were accepted with Nancy proposing and Arthur seconding the proposal.

The committee was re-elected for a further year. The Club does not have a Chairperson but it was felt that the election of one was unnecessary as any problems could be resolved using the present and coopted members of the committee.
A vote of thanks was given to Mike for directing during the year.
In any other business Peter Evans queried the amount in the Deposit account, and asked about Charitable status for the club. However it was decided to take no action regarding this.
Arthur asked about insurance for the Club. We do not have any at the present time so Mike Bigland is going to look into this. The cost will be about £60. It was felt that we should go ahead with this.
Kevin suggested that the Xmas party is held in the spring due to there being a number of parties held at the same time. The members approved this suggestion and arrangements will be made for the party in 2014 to be held when the better weather is with us.
The meeting closed at 6.45.
