The meeting reported that we now have a full team of committee members following the arrival of Bev Dipper as Membership Secretary. We have continued to produce and distribute 4 editions of the Newsletter despite the Covid challenges. Membership payments have recovered to 2019 levels. More people are paying by Direct Debit and we have maintained the £2 subscription charge. Social activities have started again and we are hopeful that we can maintain this in the next 12 months. We have improved our in house website with additional data capture and reporting functions. Development Watch continues to highlight local issues. It is well used and appreciated by the community. Finally our accounts have been audited and signed off and we continue to have a healthy financial position.
