Atrocious weather conditions restricted the numbers at the “Simpson Dinner” to ten, but an enjoyable meal was had and the President thanked John Phillipson for arranging the evening. Although verbally resigning from the Book Club due to now working in Newcastle, no written form of resignation has been received from Peter Leach, despite having been approached twice in this connection. There was still £13.50 owing to Terry Braithwaite re the July 95 “Forster” dinner which had to be paid even though he failed to attend. The Secretary has been asked to write to him regarding this matter. In the interim the £13.50 has been paid to Terry from Club Funds.
