Letter to the Editor

Dear Sir,

Why didn’t we have a competition for the new Bat design on the cover?  I’m sure mine would have won first prize!

 

Talking Point

Discussion, lately, has been dominated by the new Belfry.  It has been suggested that whether we get the Grant or not we go should go ahead and build the new Belfry this year.  It has been said that the new building as proposed,, might be priced as low as £2,000, and as Bob, our Honourable Treasurer, thinks that the money could be raised by May this year, the followers of this idea now say “Let’s get the building up ourselves this without the Grant we may not get”.

On the other hand the opposite view is taken.  That is to wait and see what the Official answer brings.  If it is ‘Yes’ then the club will have saved something up to 50% of the cost of the new Belfry – in the case of a £2,000 building - £1,000 saved! The rest of the money would then be available for other essentials such as car-park, interior fittings of the building etc.

If the former idea is accepted, then an E.G.M. will have to be called as directed by the 1967 A.G.M.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

“WIG”
