Mr Uhe proposed that the Dalton Book Club continue for another year. This was accepted unanimously. The existing Club officials agreed to remain in office. This year at the Club membership has remained steady with 16 members, some more active than others. Of the 12 meetings 11 were held in person and one by Zoom due to covid restrictions. An average of 8 members attended each meeting and a total of 72 books and magazines were loaned. Mr Imlach was absent for a period due to heart surgery but has thankfully rejoined us and Mr Jones has been made an honorary member in recognition of his long service to the club. We have had the pleasure of two dinners, expertly organised by our entertainment Secretary Mr Moore with the Ladies’ Night Dinner held at the Brown Cow in Dalton on November 10th and the Forster Dinner for members at the Stan Laurel Inn in Ulverston on February the 9th. Members were treated to a pie and pea supper in July to celebrate meeting again in person and also at the December Meeting as customary, also courtesy of Mr Moore. The Club featured in a long article in Cumbria Life, April 2022 issue, after being interviewed at the January Meeting by the editor, Sarah French. Mr Davidson completed his second year as President, the Presidency being handed to Mr Proctor for the next two years.
Michael Ross, Secretary
