AGM 2023

Around 40 club members attended the 2023 club AGM with about 30 people joining on Zoom - a very impressive turnout.† Huge thanks goes to Sam who organised, at the club, all of the food, wine and layout for the evening.

We also welcomed David Graham from the Chess Club who not only gave us an update on what is happening in their area but expressed his positive vote in connection with the potential refurbishment project.

The evening followed the usual agenda of Chairman's Speech, Treasurer's report, election of committee and prize giving.† A special thank you went to Peter Western for carrying out an independent examination of the accounts and for also agreeing to do this again next year!† John F gave an update on the result of the vote for the refurbishment project and discussed the plan in more detail.

Sam, Anne T and Heather received flowers, (as non committee members) for their contributions in assisting the club with items such as the organisation of events for the club.

The cheese and wine went down extremely well with those who attended in person and made a very relaxed atmosphere for those 8 tables who stayed on to play bridge!!

Overall a very lovely evening.† Thanks to all involved.
