Report on Branch AGM and End of Season Dance

Margaret Catchick, chairing the meeting, thanked those present for attending. She summarised the Branch Report for 2016-2017 which had been sent out with Reel 300, after which Simon Wales presented the accounts.

As there were no motions, the meeting proceeded smoothly.

The meeting was followed by the Branch End of Season dance. Ian Robertson provided superb music to dance to and although numbers were not high, a great atmosphere prevailed and for once women were in short supply! Tasty refreshments were provided by Ireen, Lena, George and Thelma and our MC’s for the evening, Rachel Wilton and Andrew Kellett, guided us seamlessly through the dances.
