The Club has received a partially-completed order form for two publications, together with a cheque dated 2 May. There is a printed name on the cheque, but otherwise no name/address or contact details (e-mail, telephone number, etc) has been entered on the order form. The name on the cheque does not match anyone on our membership list and we have not been able to trace the person anywhere else. There was no postmark on the envelope. So, if you are Mr C and are wondering why the publications have not yet been delivered to you, please get in touch with us, either by e-mail - - or by post to the address on the order form.

As some members will be aware, it proved impossible to complete the AGM originally called for 18 May. The resumed meeting will now take place at 7.00 p.m. on Wednesday 2 August at Washington Wetland Centre, Barmston Lane, Pattinson, Washington NE38 8LE, to be followed by a quiz put together by Mark Harper.

The documentation for the business part of the meeting is available here.

The meeting will include annual elections. It is vital for the future of the Club and the development of its activities that we should strengthen the Board of Trustees. At present several of the permitted twelve seats are vacant. A printable/downloadable form for nominations to the Board can be found here. The original deadline on this form can be ignored, but nominations must be received not later than midnight on Tuesday 1 August.

One of our members has recently asked “Where can we read the written constitution ?”

Here is a link to the Club Constitution and Byelaws.

Note that the Constitution is closely based on a template provided by the Charity Commission and so contains a lot of administrative, procedural and regulatory detail designed to ensure that an organisation operates within the requirements of the Charities Act.
