At the meeting on Tuesday 1st October, we discussed the following:
1. Because of the increase of the hire of the Henry Dixon Hall by 60%, it was agreed that the Group's monthly subscription should now be £3.00, some felt that in view of the cost of hiring speakers, this sum might not be enough, however,it was agreed to review this in the coming year.
2. It was agreed that the Group's name be changed to "History Group" so as to widen the scope for booking speakers, this change to come into effect next year.
3. Permission was asked of our group members, for me to compile a list of member's email addresses and/or telephone numbers, to help me keep you posted with Group information.
