It was proposed by Mr Eyre & seconded by Mr R Hunt that the minutes of the last Annual General Meeting be approved.
Correspondence was received from Mr Garfield Hunt apologising for his unavoidable absence & enclosing literature from the R.H.S. regarding space for the
Chelsea Show. It was decided not to do anything about the letter.
Financial Statement. A statement of accounts was presented to members, showing a net loss on the years workings of £6-17-2. This was due almost entirely to a reduction of income in the sale of raffle tickets at the two shows in 1961. The total expenditure was very much the same as usual.
It was felt to be a matter for further discussion
& was to be included on the agenda for the next ordinary meeting. It was proposed by Mr R. Hunt & seconded by Mr W. Markham that the balance sheet be accepted.
