Treasurer’s Report – 2020
The number of paid up members at the beginning of 2020 was 42 and, despite several members not renewing their membership, remained at 42 at the end of 2020. The income we received from subscriptions was £210.00.
With very little outgoing payments during 2020 it has been decided to suspend the payment of 2021 subscriptions until the beginning of June. It is hoped that we will be back to a normal walking diary by then and we will ask members to only pay £2.50 subscription fees for the remainder of the year.
For the AGM meeting we hired a hall at St. Leonard’s Centre. A total of £74.04 was spent on Wine & Cheese for the evening. It was noted by Sandra Jamieson, who normally buys the refreshments, that this total was up by £20 on the previous year’s cost. It was felt this was largely due to offering members refreshments on arrival at the AGM as well as after the meeting had finished.
The annual fee normally paid to the Ramblers Association in September was not paid due to the absence of a renewal letter. The Ramblers have admitted this was an error on their part and we will renew our affiliation with them when our walking diary recommences.
The Website annual fee remained the same at £15.
The sum of £22.99 was spent on retirement gifts for Jonathan Rouse and Sandra Jamieson who were stepping down from the Committee at the AGM.
The Skittles evening is usually a social occasion for the Club members to meet up and to add extra funds to the accounts. With the restrictions in place due to Covid 19 we were unable to make any arrangements for a Skittles evening
2020 Walking Weekend at Selworthy
10 members enjoyed a very hot and sunny weekend away at the HF Holiday hotel at Selworthy in Somerset. As we were a group booking HF Holiday deducted from the costs of the holiday their £50 Loyalty voucher and their usual Admin fee of £10. The members who went on the holiday therefore received a deduction of £6 from the cost of their holiday.
With the restrictions in place due to Covid 19 we were again unable to make any arrangements for a Christmas meal.
HF Holiday Shares
Interest from the shares for the year 2019 – 2020 amounts to £1.76. Our £100 of HF shares are now worth £119.13.
The net income for the year was £99.73 with our end of year bank balance at 31/12/2020 being £681.54. We have the sum of £2.21 cash in hand.
