Minutes of the AGM. held on Thursday 29th March 2018

The meeting started at 8.00 pm


1.   Minutes of the last meeting were read and signed.


2.   Chairman’s report. This year we only had 42 members but we did have a full schedule. All the competitions were well supported and we also had good support for the home and away matches at Hanbury and Newton Regis. The skittles night was well supported and so was the Christmas social which this year took a different format, being afternoon only and catering was done on the basis of donated refreshments. The chairman thanked all of the committee for all their help during the last year.



3.   Treasurer’s report. A copy of the accounts was handed to all the members present.                                                                                  The treasurer explained that the accounts from now onwards will cover the period up to the end of the bowling year.

There has been a financial loss of £260.62 leaving a balance of £9,073.39 but as the period was more than 12 months it did include 2 years engraving of the trophies and the village hall hire did include March hire for 2017 and 2018; and if the accounts were compared on a 12 monthly period then there would not have been a financial loss.
