(Full report of the AGM and the Secretary's Report can be downloaded in PDF format to the left of this page).

Kath Rhodes, (Chairman) opened the AGM by thanking the members who had turned up. The number who attended was 36.

Committee members

Members were then asked if anyone was willing to take on the role of Club Secretary in place of Kathy Kirk, who wished to step down.

No-one was willing to take on the role, so K Kirk agreed to continue for 1 more year.

Kath asked if all Committee members agree to continue in current positions?

Everyone agreed.

Kath asked if all Club members agree that current Committee members continued in current positions?

All members agreed.

Treasurers Report

  • The Auditors report (David Grey)  was read by Marion, Club Secretary, and it showed that the Club was in the black by £1,554.55.
  • A copy of the Auditors report was made available to any member who wished to see it.

Secretary’s Report

  • This was read by Kathy, a separate copy of which is available.
  • Kath thanked the Committee for all of their work in keeping the Club running so successfully.
  • Kath thanked the volunteers who organize quizzes, etc, tea duties,  biscuits, vote of thanks etc., and said it was only because so many people were willing to get involved and take on such duties that the Club was able to keep going.
  • Charity – Traditionally a local charity. Members were asked if anyone could suggest who the Club could donate to this year? No suggestions were made, so Kath suggested the Committees proposals
    • Yorkshire Air Ambulance
    • Withernsea lifeboat station.

Members voted to support the Yorkshire Air Ambulance

Kath announced that:

  • Subs: to remain at £12 per year
  • Charity Raffle – to remain at £1 per month
  • Christmas meal out- monthly savings amount to remain at £3. To start in February for those members that elected to use this facility.

Kath reminded members that meetings commence at 7:30, and close at 9:30, unless transport issues dictate otherwise.

Also  that if a social event, e.g. quiz, etc. Is running, members should stay for the duration. It is disrespectful to the person who has gone to the trouble of organising and delivering the activity for members to walk out early.
