Presentation of accounts                                                Rex Shayler
The accounts, copy appended, were presented to the meeting.  These show that after agreed purchases of footprint traps, waders and safety glasses, we will have a small surplus. We will need to raise additional sums when the group insurance and web site fees become due.

The accounts were accepted.

Planned activities for 2017

Election of committee

All committee members and officers present agreed to continue in their roles.  Committee members not present will be contacted to see if they are willing to continue. 

Any other business

Peter Harris reported by email that he has been unsuccessful in obtaining corporate funding from the two companies he has so far approached but is now contacting another company which he thinks might be supportive.  Peter is also contacting the Air Cadets to see if they can be involved in some of our activities.

Sue Newham told the meeting about a litter pick event by the All Saints Youth Group on 9th April.  We will have a representative there to discuss the groups’ ongoing involvement.


It has been reported that there have been incidents of dogs being deliberately poisoned by sausages laced with poison being placed along the river bank.  Be on the look-out, especially dog owners amongst us.
