Membership price increase....

At the AGM, held at Launde Abbey in October, a resolution was passed to raise the club membership fee from 6, to 10, a rise of just under 67%. This was intended to start from this year but couldn't be implemented in time, and so the intention is that it will now start from Dec 2012.
As the club has a more than healthy fund reserve, well in excess of 5.5k, and the membership fees are still covering the newsletter costs, I don't believe a fee increase is necessary at this time, certainly not one of this magnitude anyway, and so I have decided to step down as Website Manager,  & Membership/
Treasurer.  Sally Whytehead has now taken over the website, and Margaret Arton is covering the Finance and Membership side. I wish the club well for the future.
