Treasurers Report

The committee continue with a prudent approach to its finances and have identified the need to replace the windows at the front of the hall. This is the key focus for fund raisning events and the project planning is currently in process. Window Replacement:

It has been agreed that window replacement would be tackled as a separate project to any planned potential extension of the Hall.  Securing planning permission for window replacement would be possible in 2010.

The accounts will be presented to the AGM on Monday 26th April and a copy is available on request.
