February 2019: Annual Meeting

Standard

February saw our annual meeting and as usual it was one of our quieter ones, this year it also fell on Valentine’s Day so maybe our Sweethearts were distracted with other matters! We started the evening with a soup supper, provided by our lovely Sue, with a choice of Winter Vegetable or Spicy parsnip and locally sourced artisan bread.  This also provided a chance to chat and with tea and homemade ginger cake in hand we tackled the formal part of the meeting.  Our wonderful treasurer, Sam, took us through the financial statement, which has been independently audited. Our departing Secretary, Sarah looked back over 2018, while our also departing President, Amy, looked forward to 2019. Both Sarah and Amy have worked hard for all the Spa Sweethearts over a number of years and we thanked them with flowers and presents. Our WI advisor , Anne, then helped with the election of the new President, which will be Felicity, with Lucy H as the Secretary. The new committee were  also confirmed and we all look forward to the new year for Spa Sweethearts.

We finished the evening with a fun and slightly raucous Beetle Drive, despite the ‘silent’ dice! The new committee would like to thank everyone for supporting the annual meeting and look forward to an exciting 2019.
