Other Announcements

Newsletter.
The 'What's On' column in the newsletter was a mess. We had used a previous newsletter (with AGM structure) as a base, and had not updated the What's On section correctly. Apologies to all involved.
The What's On information is now correct on the Overhead projections today (Monday, at the monthly meeting), on the Website and will be in the next Bulletin (due before the end of May).

A Thank You Message.
As the Chairman gives thanks to many people at the AGM, Jim took the opportunity to thank all those who work with him in the various roles. These include the Newsletter and Bulletin, which has been supplemented recently by Ed Stothard; the Visits Team, where Najla Matti has recently started to help; the IT Team, which have made some significant improvements in the last 6 months; and Wendy for providing refreshments at the many meetings at our house.

IT Team Vacancy
Jim thanked Ralph Hughes who recently stood down from supporting the distribution of newsletters and bulletins. We already had a vacancy for someone to supplement the IT Team. They will ideally have knowledge of Excel, MS Access, and Visual Basic, but if anyone has a programming background and is willing to learn, we can provide some training. This will be a supporting role as the IT Team is trying to build contingency into its structure.
Anybody who is interested in joining this team should contact Jim Hall or John Martin.
