Secretary’s Report:  

We are shy of one social secretary. Someone needs to step up to the plate.

Social Secretary’s Report:

No social sec,  but before G I Walker stepped down he did book the Masonic Lodge in Stoke for the Gentlemen’s evening the Friday before Remembrance Sunday which is only 4 weeks away.

Vice President:

Exeter Rugby have been in touch are they are looking at dates to give us a discount so we can go and watch a premiership rugby match. Something different. When I know then you’ll know.
