Secretary’s report
Gill pointed out that new notices were on the Notice Board and that mostly members are required to send off any booking information/monies due directly to Federation using the slip on the notice. Notices are also on Facebook and in the Magazine, but if members want a form sent to them then contact Gill and she will forward one to them. Regarding events such as the Annual Council Meeting and AGM, members are to add their name to the list and then give correct money or cheque to Marylyn to be collated.
Jenny Silk pointed out that an event coming up on 24th November in Canterbury might require members to consider car sharing as parking is so expensive in Canterbury. Taking the bus is also an option for this.
