Notice is hereby given, as provided for in the Constitution, of the club AGM:

Venue:      David Murphy's (pub) (Juke Box Room)
Address:   Worcester Street, Stourbridge, DY8 1AT (Approx 100 yds from the ring road)
Date:         THURSDAY 23rd AUGUST 2012
Time:        7.30p.m. - 8.15 (approx)

  • Accompanied children are welcome up to the end of the meeting
  • The committee wished to bring the meeting more in line with the end of the financial year rather than allowing it to drift until well into the new one. However, several of the officers are unavailable for various periods through September and October. Therefore it was decided to choose this date when the club is closed.
  • Since the AGM will be before the end of the financial year, the Treasurer will present draft accounts, which will be later completed to take into account any transactions occurring in the final week of the month of August. The meeting will be asked to approve the accounts subject to the new committee approving the final version including any such transactions.
  • There will be at least one member of the current committee not standing for re-election because of other commitments. Volunteers to fill the vacancy(ies) are welcome.
  • Reminder: The club is closed on Thursdays 16th and 23rd August 2012 (caretakers' holidays)
