Alan Sunderland on his retirement presented the Club with bottles of whisky and gin. The President and members wished him well on his retirement. The President and members also toasted our senior member, Bill Robinson, on the occasion of his 80th Birthday and thanked him for his gift of a bottle of whisky which is to be partaken of at a later meeting. It was proposed and carried that although Bill Hannah had not attended the last seven monthly meetings no action be taken with regard to the Secretary writing to him, bearing in mind his present state of health and well-being. Bill Jones is to again try to make contact with him.
The practice of seconding proposals which has only crept in over recent years is to be discontinued as it is not and never was a requirement of the Club.”Seconded by Mr Macgregor”.
