Social Secretaryís Report:

Nothing from me and now bowing out from Social Secretary job.

Vice President:

Right gents we were going to have a vote tonight on accepting the constitution however I only started getting feed back 2/3 days ago and so Iíve not been able to get it sorted for tonight, so as V.P. I am going to push the vote back until January. That gives us plenty of time for you to read it, give me your feed back so I can get it sorted  and push out for you to read a final draft.

I was up in Pompey last weekend and Larry Lloyd is now President of RNGIA. They have voted in Leading Hands and they can be part of the Association but cannot vote or sit in a position of President or VP.

Presidents Report: 

Shortly we will move onto the reason for us being here, I will remind every one only paid up members have a vote.

There will be an August meeting.

Secretaryís Report: 

I have received a letter from Give a child a chance which was our last charity.

Dear Neil,

Thank you for the magnificent £507.00 that you raised for Give a Child a Chance.

As you know the money is spent locally for children and their families who use the Child and Mental Health Services.

This money will go towards BUD club to help pay for a Sensory Room which some of your members have visited.

Please thank everyone who helped to raise the money.

Yours Sincerely

Nicky Evans

Thank you gentlemen Iím looking forward to getting stuck in, I have a few ideas but the one thing I will stress is if we donít have the support for social events it ainít going to work. September Iím looking at a booze cruise. After that is the members dinner and Iím looking at the Masonic Lodge on the Hoe. Reason being it is central for all. Iím looking at Jacket and tie for this one and letís see how it goes.
