The chairman welcomed everyone to the annual meeting and apologies from those unable to attend were read out. The minutes of the last annual meeting were read and approved. The secretary, chairman and treasurer read out their reports for the previous year, which had been very successful with many varied and interesting speakers, dances and social gatherings both within our own club and other clubs. The officers and committee all stood down with the exception of the treasurer, Pauline Crowther who was starting the second year of office. The chairman Beryl Rooke was re-elected also the secretary Sheila Little. Committee members elected were: Len Allen, Marcella Bird, Pam and Sid Wilby, Carol Sprought, and Bob White.
