Greetings Scribes,

An enjoyable meeting with plenty of topics of discussion this week. Our Secretary Richard is making good progress after his Knee opp. We look forward to welcoming him back soon. In the meantime we must thank June for stepping in to take notes this week. With the imminent departure of John the group must consider how to manage meetings after his departure.

On that subject John and Jean would like to invite all members to a leaving party on Saturday 29th February from 8pm at the Neptune Hotel. Please call in for a drink a buffet will be provided and there is a risk of music and dancing.
