Chairman’s Report
Challenges over 2018-19:As our treasurerhas already mentioned due to budget cuts the branch has had a difficult year meeting the budget cuts with still providing a quality of events for the membership and the committee have worked hard delivering a programme of events suitable for the membership so that you all felt you were getting a level of service that your membership payment deserves and I hope we have achieved this.All branch meetings have been held at Nissan Sports and Leisure Complex insteadof other venues and we have tried to maintain the high quality of standards that you expect with a varied wide range of topics covered.
Chairman’s Report

And, we hope you have enjoyed the topics that have been covered.It is our intention once again to meet on 22ndJune 2019 to discuss our programme of events to be covered over 2019/20.Personally I would like to thank the committee for their commitment and hard work over the past year making our branch one of the best in the countryin my opinion.
