Mr Taylor chaired the meeting and Alan Cassley stood in as Assistant Secretary. John Phillipson on behalf of Dalton with Newton Parish Council presented the Club with a signed copy of Jim Walton’s book “Tales of Old Dalton”. Mr Braithwaite asked that we give some thought to the Ladies Night dinner and after some discussion Reg Stern proposed it be held at Clarence House on Thursday November the 18th or November the 11th as a second choice. If unable to fit us in, the second choice venue to be Glen Garth. Three names put forward for membership of the Club and these were John Phillipson nominating Jim Gardner, Ernest Boddy nominating David Olliver and Harry Miller nominating Dennis Reeve.
