Reports – Treasurer Martin said that our finances were in a healthy state, but that because of a rise in District Capitation, our Club Sub would increase from £121 to £124 as from July. He gave figures for the Charity and Club funds.

Community Service – John Binns had sent a report – The Halcon Link project had got off to a fine start. BIBIC had asked for money to help fill a gap in funding. 

Youth/Vocational – The Technology Tournament had been a success, though with only one school taking part. It was hoped that lessons will have been learned to enable the event to take place next year with more participating.

International – The co-operation in Kenya with RC Ruiru has meant that our funding of the project to install Latrines was completed, but that Drinking Water was now on a wants list. A report with photographs was awaited and would be shown to Club when ready.

House/ Programme – Speakers and events were now in place up to July. A Speaker is sought for the meeting on 17th June when Inner Wheel would be catering for us, and any suggestions to Colin please.

Communications – The temporary Webmaster is A Janes. TuesdayGram will continue, but fresh reporters are needed – volunteers to Richard G.

Breakfast Club – this initiative by RCTV was paying off in that we have now inducted 7 new members to a Rotary Satellite Club, in a 40 plus age group, which would be furthering the Objects of Rotary but in a different way, Networking and Public Service.

District Conference 2020, at which our Rory O’Donnell would be DG, will be organised by Richard Goring and a sub-committee, to take place at Queens College on 3-5 July, and to be FUN. Volunteers were required to help with planning and procuring.
