We had a good turn out at the Community Association Annual General
Meeting. The Chairman reported another very successful year, with the
Carol Evening, Quiz Evening, FÍte and October’s Singalaonga Sound of
Music proving popular with villagers.
He thanked the Dobbins and the Sangers for the regular use of their
gardens for the Fete, and Andy Lewis for masterminding so many happy
The Chairman also stressed the Community Association’s gratitude to the
Scouts for purchasing, packing and distributing Christmas hampers -
which are funded by profits made from the Carol Evening. Jim Sanger was
also thanked for his work as Honorary Auditor for this and the coming
year, along with all Committee members for their hard work, notably
Caroline Oakley who regularly leads the food team.
The Treasurer, James Davys, reported a continued healthy bank surplus -
money that is retained for long-term funding requirements, such as
maintenance of the Kings Meadow hard standing. The reserves stood at
£6,372 compared to £6,829 last year. £3,000 of this is tentatively
allocated to repairs, maintenance and future re-surfacing of the tennis
courts. £5,464 had been distributed as grants to village activities and
clubs and £482 had gone towards Christmas hampers.
The Chairman, Secretary (Madeline Sanger) and Treasurer were re-elected,
with all other current Committee members: Joan Brewer, Dariel Burdass,
Frank Farquharson, David Fox, Bill Horsfield, Penny Kane, Andy Lewis,
Angela Lewis, Sue Myatt, Caroline Oakley, Amanda Potter, Tony Stapleton
and Maureen Tarry.
