done everyone - last Monday we raised a grand total of £570 for the air
ambulance. Thanks go to Rob and John for running the auction and the
£111 that has been added into the above total, being straight
donations. I had £5 earlier this year, but can't remember who from, so
apologies for that. Other donors, Bob J, Dave W, Tony D, Terry
Roger T(on behalf of Simon Pritchard). Added to that is the fact that
Bob bought one of the Christmas Hampers and it has been
direct to the Air ambulance for them to raise money with. Thanks to
Barry for providing his large jars of pickled onions - he wanted to
prepare them when he was in hospital, but was refused permission by the
medical staff, but he still managed to get them done in time. Thanks
must also go to Mary and John for their hampers, which raised some good
hard cash. Not forgetting all the donated items and those who bought
them - only a Rob, as auctioneer, could have waxed lyrical about some
of the items, just as though he was describing a Velo.
my visit to HQ last Thursday I learnt that all the motions on the
agenda paper for the last General Meeting were passed, with the
exception of the one regarding turning the Library into a trust.

date for 2020 is 31st May - moved from the third Sunday in June, as
