Weekly Meeting

Thu, Nov 28th 2019 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Special General Meeting and Business Meeting

Prior to our SGM and Business meetings, two cheque presentations were made.

1. To Pat Harland, Chair of Bingham & District Audio Magazine.  This is an annual gift to cover the production of December's Magazine each year.

2. To Emma Lodder, representing Fay and Matt, the parents of Harry, a 6 year old boy who has suffered serious medical issue since contracting MRSA when he was 1 year old.  He has a very rare EOE condition, which make hime allergic to fruit and vegetables, affects his white blood cell count and mass cell syndrome, sleep apnia, severe asthma and has difficulty walking. The NHS cannot cope with him so the parents with the help of friends are working to raise £10k to cover private health care.

Jane opened with her "food for thought"- "Friendship - the foundation upon which Rotary is built; Tolerance - no more explanation required!"

Peter Jordan took us through the accounts, which were carried. 

Officer nominees: Gordon Marsh as President Nominee; Anne Daly as Treasurer.  We are still awaiting a nominee for Secretary.

Community - David E. brought some discussion on whether there should be a donation to EMICS, which could be achieved by diverting the £1k from Candleby Lane school.  Changes had taken place at the Head and Deputy level, so they were unable to progress their outdoor proposals. A proposition was made to this effect and was carried.  Mike Morris to take over as Chair of Community next year.

Chris Henley stimulated some discussion about the changes regarding the Charity Commissions Advice note, such that we have separate parts of our Business Meetings: Club Meeting and a Charity Trust Meeting..5 Trustees to oversee the Charity Trust Account, with further discussion on the liability of the Trustees, clarified from a legal perspective by Ian.

Discussion with regard to Council Minutes concluded that it was best to circulate them before future Business Meetings, rather than on our Club Website.
