AGM – 16th October 2018

Hello,
Our Annual General Meeting will be taking place on Tuesday 16th October 2018 at 8pm in the back room of the Hearsall inn. This means that there will be NO LESSONS on that night.
All fully paid members are welcome to come along to the AGM. If you wish to become a member or renew your membership then please see Boo Cullen or another member of the committee before the AGM. Membership is £8 for an adult, £4 for a child or £14 for a family.
As with last year, all paid members will be receiving an AGM pack either via email or through the post, depending on which preference you selected when renewing your membership/becoming a member. The standard set last year was that this would be received a week in advance of the AGM but due to a delay in receiving the branch AGM information, this has not been possible. We are currently working to get these packs to you as quickly as possible, and we hope the electronic copies will be received by the end of the week.
If you do not receive one but feel like you should have then please contact me immediately.
Unlike last year, the pack will NOT be uploaded on social media or on our website.
If you have any questions at all then please do not hesitate to contact either myself or any other member of the committee.
Many thanks,
Michael Fitzgerald
Youth Officer
