AGM Details and Agenda

By now everyone should have received their invite. The AGM is on Thursday the 3rd, at 7pm for a 7.30pm start, at the Woodside Hall. If you have not received an invite please contact the Secretary to confirm your details and attendance. There will be a raffle on the night, so to avoid disappointment remember money for tickets. There will also be the unused tags draw for a free permit, so bring any unused tags to be entered. Unfortunately this draw is only available to those present on the night. The final draw is from the completed members forms that were returned. This is also for a free permit.

Agend details are below.
