Report read by CB and attached.

The reduction in income from Fundraising was discussed.

There was no Plant Sale last year and this usually contributes a substantial amount.

A donation from the BP show is still outstanding, awaiting approval from the Committee.


Report from Social Secretary

Report was given verbally by SM.

SM reflected on things that had gone well and those that were less successful.

Overall, the feeling was a positive one with the Village being in a good place with regards to cohesion. The quizzes have increased in popularity over the year.

The quarterly socials have been flagging a bit, but the Social Group are looking at ways to give these events more focus.

HM thanked Steve for his leadership of this group and all his hard work.

No other questions or comments.
