Following previous work with questionnaire and analysis Dave W to introduce and guide proposals for change though committee / sub-committee. Dave to examine which specific improvements need to be made, then look at rule changes to support these improvements.


Rule changes are needed. Dave and John will work on these.


Changes need to be in format. John thinks that we need the V.C. thinking of him/herself as potential chair. The changes need proposing separate motions. Darren stated that we need the final version to be in a format acceptable for the AGM.

Suggested we leave V.C. as it is but for one year only afer being Chair. The Chair will serve for a maximum of five sequential years. Committee members should be elected on a 2+2 basis so only two are elected in any one year.


Dave has sent final version to committee. To be introduced at AGM.


John thought that rule 4 could cause confusion. After some discussion it was agreed that John would make some amendments and introduce the changes at the  AGM as Dave would not be present. Darren acknowledged the huge amount of work that Dave has done on this.

Assemble costings for new Stair roof


Andy reported that from the survey the existing roof is not leaking. The proposal is to leave the existing roof insulation in place having stripped off the mossy outer layer  and then to build a new roof on top. To exceed building regulations with a deluxe replacement would cost £15840. Darren thanked Andy for his efforts in obtaining the information. Tony and Andy are to look at prices to see if we can obtain a better deal.


Andy has spoken to John Mather the rep. and will get three pricings. Chris also has a pricing at about £13600


Darren felt that we needed to decide on priorities. There was some discussion about what we could do ourselves and if this was at all feasible. Andy had obtained two further quotations which were more expensivethan the original. Andy was going to suummarise imformation by e-mail.

Mike informed the meeting that some costs could be absorbed but that otherwise we could obtain interest free loans from club members.
