The first item on the agenda was the retirement of Mr Charles Jones, a stalwart over 14 years serving in various posts the final one being that of treasurer. The club cannot thank him or praise him enough for all the hard work he has done making the club what it is today.

The meeting then went on to elect the new officers and committee, namely chairman Mr Ken Nuttall, treasurer Mr Harold Thompson, secretary Mrs Sandra Bramall and committee members, Mrs Margaret Titterton, Mrs Frances Nuttall and Mrs Diane Edwards.

The evening ended with bingo.
