Club News

At last night's AGM, two new committee members were appointed - Adrian Battersby taking over the role of "Publicity" as a standalone role, and Kelvin Norton taking on two new roles of "Club Archivist" and "Club Librarian". More about these roles and how they will develop over time will be communicated at club events and through the newsletter/website.

I'm sure you will join us in wishing the two new committee members every success in their new roles.

Helen Greenwood who was previously responsible for publicity is now in the role of "Club Secretary". This is a defined role that the LCPU stipulate we must have (along with Chairman and Treasurer) so this change is to ensure we are compliant with LCPU requirements.

Please note, that following the AGM, and to ensure that the club remains solvent going forward, the membership voted unanimously to increase the annual single membership fee to £40 per year, and the annual joint membership to £65.

Given that we have 23 meetings scheduled for this year, this still remains at less than £2 per meeting which everyone present agreed was very good value.

In addition, as more than half of the club's income from membership fees is spent on the venue hire, the committee are considering relocating in order to minimise this expense to enable us to continue to pay guest speakers and models, which were agreed to be popular nights, but also are the most expensive nights to host. The committee are currently undertaking an feasibilty exercise to examine other venues. Any further news will be communicated at club events, through the newsletter, and on this website. 

For more details on what went on at the committee meeting, please keep your eyes peeled for the separate blog posting on the matter.

PLEASE NOTE - MEMBERSHIP FEES ARE NOW DUE. Please bring payment with you to the next meeting. The full pro rata schedule of fees for members joining part way through the year will be updated soon.
