WALKS and TALKS
Your Committee is meeting in January to decide the programme for 2020 and there will
be more details in the next Newsletter.
The annual subscriptions, now due for 2020, are unchanged at £15 for an individual or
£20 per household. We ask you to complete and return the membership renewal sheet
The AGM took place before the Butterfly talk on Tuesday October 29th 2019.
The Accounts were circulated and discussed.They showed that total income in 2018 was £1940 including income from
walks and expenditure was £1459 and the carry forward to 2019 was £868. In 2019, Income to date was £1434 and expenditure £800. The fall in subscription income was caused by 12 households not renewing but total active membership was still over 80. During the year Kim Einhorn stepped down from the committee but she still manages the web site on behalf of the Friends. Lavinia Kartal. Maria Schlatter and Geoff Segar were co-opted onto the Committee during the year to join Bruce Mackay, Chris Johnstone, Philip Samworth and Peter Falk. The appointments of the three new members were proposed by David Morris and seconded by Philip Samworth and therefore approved at the meeting.
As there was no further business, the meeting terminated. AGM
