The meeting was chaired by John Housego and minutes taken by Alasdair Paton.
The minutes from last year's meeting were circulated by AJP during the meeting. These were accepted (proposed: Mary Timms, seconded: Valory Batchellor).
The chairman said a few words of welcome and handed over to the Secretary.
Firstly the web site was established in the past year, and seems to be a useful source of information for club members.
A written report (see here for PDF version - 450kB) was circulated at the meeting. Lists of all the major trips in the year are listed in there. A summary of the trips we made between April 2002 and February 2003 follows:
Diana provided a set of accounts for the previous year which showed the club finances looking healthy. There were 17 full members of the club during 2003-03. A total of £124.14 was available in the bank at the close of the year. It was agreed that the existing subscription (£5 per member, per annum) was sufficient to cover expenses and would be maintained.
The accounts were proposed by Valory Batchellor and seconded by Hazel Fix, and were agreed unanimously.
Diana confirmed that she would not stand for Treasurer in 2003-04.
As mentioned above, Diana did not stand for re-election as Treasurer. All other committee members were standing for re-election:
Denise Fenwick was the only nominee for the post of Treasurer (proposed: Hazel Fix, seconded: Denise Haverty).
Since there was only one candidate for each post, the candidates were elected en bloc. (Proposed: Justine Grose, seconded: David Haigh, carried unanimously).
This became a discussion about trips to be arranged for next year.
Firstly we looked at local walks. It was agreed that these did not begin until too late in the season last year, so the following people were asked to arrange the calendar for local walks starting in late May/early June:
Mark Moriai mentioned that there are a number of sponsored walks taking place around Hampshire and Wiltshire in May, which the club might like to attend:
Longer trips discussed were:
|USA (Catskills)||Jim Warnes||September?|
|Scotland||?||not sure, due to USA trip?|
|Mid Wales||Hazel Fix||?|
|Ilfracombe, Devon||Hazel Fix||May|
|Wast Water, Lakes||?||June|
It was agreed that a planning meeting would be held to sort out the above list by mid March 2003.
Finally a vote of thanks was proposed to the outgoing committe (by Valory and Denise Fenwick). The meeting was then closed.
