AGM at Guildhall Club
5th November 2019
Annual General meeting at the Guildhall Club
The AGM held on 5th November proved a most convivial occasion when sixty one members had the opportunity to thank outgoing Master Dr Chris Eyles for his year in office and the interesting variety of events he had arranged.
The formal business included the adoption of the minutes of the last meeting, the Treasurer's Report (advising the Club is in good financial health) and the installation of the incoming Master Ian Kelly and Senior Warden Alan Fallshaw. Junior Warden elect, Rachelle Goldberg was unable to be present and will receive her badge of office prior to the commencement of the Civic lunch in January. Alderman Nick Anstee is to remain President and nominations for the Committee were advised and accepted. With business concluded members were able to enjoy pre dinner libations before partaking in a suburb dinner comprising New Forrest reared beef with seasonal vegetables followed by Poached Winter Fruits and Saffron sauce.
Past Master Ron Wood and member Jon Scott Francis actively sold raffle tickets raising an amazing £381. A framed print of Aldersgate and a cushion, both of which were designed and donated by Shirley Day were auctioned raising a further £200 . This grand total will support the Club's donation to the Lord Mayor's Charity.
