2020 Annual Summary

Dalton Book Club 2019-2020 Annual Report, June 2020

Membership remained stable this year, starting and ending with 17 active members. Mr Dawes was as industrious as ever in press ganging his co-workers. Sadly we lost another Honorary Member, Gordon MacGregor in April. Our President described him as “A fine and unforgettable character”. Unusually this year we had one member voted in who didn’t attend any Meetings and was ultimately asked to resign.

The Ladies’ Night Dinner at the King Alfred on Walney and the Simpson Dinner at the Village Inn at Newton were both great successes thanks to Mr Moore.

Book stocks remained nearly static, beginning the year at 135 items and finishing with 137.

Due to the exceptional Covid-19 situation fewer books were loaned this year than usual totalling 78, of which 9 were borrowed twice and just one, “An Industrial Archaeology of South Ulverston” by McKeever and Layfield was borrowed three times.
