Minutes of April 2022 Main Monthly Meeting


Alison Currah (Chair) welcomed the 68 members attending the meeting and thanked them for attending. Alison welcomed the new members and asked existing members to make them welcome.

A fire inspection of the building has been undertaken, thanks to Rod Pritchard (retired Fireman) for doing this. Following this, Marilyn King has been co-opted onto the committee as Health and Safety Officer to help ensure the safety of members at meetings.

Alison reminded members that they can book tickets for events at any time and to please use the social account for payment, ideally by BACs and not the main membership account, which is used for subscriptions.

Following a suggestion box note, name badges are available for everyone.


Tickets sales for the Boconnoc visit and the Anniversary lunch were on sale today. The theme for the Anniversary lunch will be on a 50’s theme with a prize for the best outfit. Other visits, including a trip to the National Aquarium are being planned and further detail will be announced shortly.

The new members evening will be taking place Tuesday 14th April at the Millpool Centre.
