AGM 2015

The AGM  for 2015 was held before bridge on Wednesday 7 January 2015 with over 50 members present. Richard Sissons, Chairman, summed up the years events and thanked a number of people including Committee Members for their help during the year. He thanked all the Club members for their generosity in raising over £500 for Children In Need in 2104. Competition Winners were acknowledged and a proposed Calendar for 2015 was agreed. The Treasurer reported a profit for the year and the Accounts were duly accepted. Despite an increase in room hire charges it was agreed to maintain table money and subscriptions at current levels for another year. This has proved possible due to good attendance levels. However, the cost for some Sims events will rise to £5 per player as the present charge is not sufficient to cover all associated costs.  It was noted the Hotel has withdrawn bottled water and only tap water will be provided. It has been agreed that members may bring their own "personal use" water but no drinks of any other kind are permitted as this is contrary to licensing conditions and could course the Hotel to review this concession. The meeting concluded with the election of the existing Committee "en-bloc" with the addition of Fred Davies. There were no other matters discussed and bridge commenced at 1935 hours.
