  Notes from Committee's first meeting

Our new Chairman, Bob Finley, ran his first meeting following the Saturday Chapter meeting.

Prior to the Chapter meeting Bob passed out two papers to everyone. The first asked for suggestions on any changes people would like to make in order to improve how the Chapter could be run. Only 4 replies were received. Click here to see some of the suggestions put forward. Of course, Bob would be delighted to receive any suggestions so please keep them coming.

The second paper outlined some of Bob's own suggestions. Click here to see these.

One of Bob's suggestions was to put a picture of ALL entries to the competitions on the website. This was implemented immediately and Bob himself has provided the images
