Treasurer’s Report

The following is a summary of the accounts for the year to 31st August 2019.  You will see that there was a small rise in subscription income and a fall in expenditure.  This resulted in a working surplus of £718.  Income from our activities was £2493.  We did not receive a legacy this year.   The Committee decided to donate £2500 as detailed below resulting in a retained balance of £8998.

I would like to record my thanks to Roger Turner for taking on the job of examiner of the accounts.

John Clews, Treasurer
