2. APOLOGIES FOR ABSENCE

There were no apologies for absence.

 

3. ELECTION OF OFFICERS

The following were elected:

Chairman – John Anderson

Hon Treasure – John Winterburn

Hon Secretary – Trevor Daynes

 

4. TREASURER’S REPORT

The Hon Treasurer informed the meeting that there is £226 in the funds.

The Hon Treasurer pointed out projected expenses – Group trips and brewing ingredients (deemed to be sufficient at the moment). Estimated stock of grains held in store are as follows:

18kg Torrefied Wheat

50kg Rolled Barley

12kg Flaked Maize

18kg Black Malt

6kg Roast Barley

12kg Chocolate Malt

25kg Pale Crystal Malt

6kg Dark Crystal Malt

 

5. SUBSCRIPTIONS

The meeting agreed to re-instate the £5 subs payable at each meeting attended.

The meeting agreed that Peter Fenwick be given 1/9th of the funds (£25) as he paid subscriptions into the funds but felt he was not getting any of the benefits, such as malt, etc. Ian Jackson agreed to take his £25 out of group funds as he was unsure when he would be able to make future meetings due to his work situation. It was further agreed by the rest of the members that their share should remain in Group funds. Also, to allay any dispute, the meeting agreed that once subs were paid, they became the property of the Group and not to individuals.

 

6. TRANSPORT

The meeting agreed that where a minibus is not hired, members must find their own way to Group meetings and meet their own expenses. It was further agreed that if a minibus is hired, it would not start at Aldborough St John as this incurs extra hiring cost (see 2nd paragraph under no. 5. Subscriptions): it was also pointed out that a minibus does not pick up other members who live out of town (Darlington).

 

7. POLITENESS

If any member cannot attend a meeting they must inform the host, giving at least three days notice. Similarly, if a member is bringing a guest, they should do the same.

 

8. MEMBERSHIP

It was decided that we advertise in the Town Crier, the Cheers magazine and local newspapers to gain new members.

 

The meeting closed at 7.05pm
