SUMMER TERM – dates:

FEES – set tariff:
Although average attendance figures had risen to 17 during the Spring Term, there continued to be a small financial shortfall over a 10 week term. Discussed the possibility of raising the extra by holding the occasional raffle on Club mornings. One idea was to sell the tablet pens for £1 ( new members gratis).
AT remarked that he was organising ‘Hook a Duck’ on the 23rd. which proceeds would benefit the School / Friends of the Fone Box / Boot-IT Club.
Fees to remain at £6.00 per session. Agreed.
CS raised the need to obtain contacts outside of the Club that might have synergy in helping to raise our profile.
Due to pressing family commitments the Secretary reluctantly handed in his notice. The end of Spring Term quarterly report for ERYC will be completed. Vote of thanks expressed by the Chair and was gratefully received.
