Events Report

The Burns Night was successful and raised over £1,000 despite the short timespan to put the event together. We should plan earlier for next years’ event and build on the success.

The quiz night will take place again in early September and a date can be arranged once fixtures are known.

The Bottled Beer festival is still a good idea but it needs someone to take the lead on it and no one has been identified yet.

The Player of the Year Dance is being put together by a committee of supporters and will take place on 23 April at the Dean Park Hotel.

It was suggested to agree a Community Budget which would allow the Board to  allocate funds quickly to community and good causes – AGREED in principle.
Action: Agree specific budget and simple criteria
