Members Please Note

In the May edition of the Banyan Tree you will find a copy of the March 2014 AGM minutes. I would like to clarify the position regarding the increase in subscriptions.  At this stage it appears clear that there will need to be an increase in January, the first for several years. However, this does not necessarily mean that subscriptions will increase to £15 as indicated by the minutes.  As in previous years, we sought the meeting’s approval for an  increase to a maximum of £15 should it be necessary.  Although an increase is planned, the decision over the actual amount has not yet been made.  Members will be informed in the November edition what the actual increase will be for 2015. Margaret Oliver, Chairman
