NEWS HOUND - BRANCH’S AGM 2008.

On Sunday, 4th February the branch’s 2008 A.G.M. was held, once again, in the very attractive Old School Hall in Cuckfield, West Sussex. Brian, our chairman, gave an eloquent and upbeat assessment on the club's activities over the past year. All were in agreement that they had all been great fun. He praised Rosemary for all the excellent work that she had done in the role of secretary.

Rosemary’s own report said that the walks had been well attended. Although, it was thought that the trial walk organised for North Kent was a disappointment because so few local members attended. She was pleased to report that membership numbers had increased.

Michael announced in the Treasurer’s report that the branch's finances were healthy; although, we can expect less interest due to lower interest rates. He told the meeting that membership subscriptions will remain the same for the coming year.

Jean, our walks organiser, reiterated that the numbers of hounds attending were pleasing. It was agreed that trophies will be awarded at the Christmas Dinner in December to the hounds who have attended the most walks.

Judy Stringer had resigned from the committee. It was proposed that she should be awarded an honorary life membership in recognition of all her dedicated service. Dusty Miller proposed that Michael Errey should also receive this honour and this was unanimously approved.

Tony Roberts was welcomed onto the committee.

Following the formal proceedings, those present were treated to light refreshments which were greatly enjoyed.
