Our Secretary, Jackie Sheppard, reported that at the end of 2017 our membership reached a record figure of 85 members and that the percentage of French members now stands at 40% as opposed to 26% in 2014. British members account for 52% and other nationalities 8%. Jackie gave a résumé of the events organised throughout the year together with attendance figures.
Roy Powell, the Treasurer, presented his report and displayed the balance sheets. On the recommendation of the Auditor, the members unanimously agreed the accounts.
It was a warm sunny day and following the closure of the meeting members were able to enjoy an aperitif on the terrace outside the restaurant before sitting down indoors to enjoy lunch together. There was plenty to discuss over an excellent meal in very pleasant surroundings. Members had listened attentively during the morning’s meeting but made up for lost time over lunch and the chatter became louder and louder. The sun was shining; the food was good; the company was excellent and all too soon it was time to go our separate ways.
