  • The form should go to The Chairman when completed
  • How and when to use the forms will be included in the 1st Aid kits
  •  The form will be online
  • The small book within the 1st aid kits will still be used for minor incidents

Stuart Blows will amend the form and submit to the committee.

Parking in Homs Road
Despite Homs Road car park being free it was agreed that Wilton would remain as the meeting place for walks

Walk and Leaders Records
The committee agreed that although the walking holiday is open to everyone, participation may be affected by cost and other factors and it is not appropriate for these walks to be added to the general records.

22nd March 2018 at the Ross Golf Club. Walk followed by coffee, AGM and buffet lunch. Coffee and biscuits at £1.50pp will be funded by the club, as will the cost of the room at £90. Lunch is optional and is £9pp which members will need to book and pay for in advance. Forms for the lunch will be sent out shortly.

Nomination forms, minutes of 2017 and the agenda will be sent out to members by the end of January.

Membership cards need to be made ready for the AGM.

Graham Brown has kindly offered to lead the pre AGM walk.

It will be proposed during the AGM that a flat rate of £5 membership should be for everyone, including new members. The £2 for social membership will remain the same.
