2017 AGM at February Meeting

Friday, 7 April 2017

20 Club members were present for the meeting, and apologies were received form Andy Roberts, Steve Clegg and Brian Pierce.
Treasurers  report
Cliff Hurley reported an increase in the club funds at the end of the year, mainly due to the no show of two professional demonstrators whose slots were covered by club members.
Cliff guided members trough the balance sheet  and answered questions thereon. There was no need to change fees for the coming year and annual membership fees were now due. Cliff would be issuing new membership cards  as members paid their dues.

The planned hands on eveing began with a discusion regarding the rise of the cost of the room hire at Wimborne Road Methodist Church.

Robert Till - April 2016

Tuesday, 12 April 2016

Robert's demonstration was very interesting and enjoyed by all.

He showed us how to make a bird nesting box with a rounded bottom; hollowed out of one large piece of a tree branch.  He also made a removable top to fit on the hollowed piece so that it could be opened and cleaned after the nesting season is over.

All members present thought it had been an enjoyable evening and would look forward to seeing more demonstrations by Robert in the future.
