Please find attached the minutes of the last Annual General Meeting. Thank you to all those who attended and it was an enjoyable evening.
At the meeting we presented last years accounts and were pleased to be able to report that the recent trend in negative end result seems to have been halted for last year anyway. There have been some efficiencies made with staffing and we are pleased to report that things seem to be running well.We appointed a membership secretary to help provide the members with what they want. Alton water is proud that we have a large membership and we operate as a pay and play sailing club and hopefully we do so in a manner that is satisfactory for the users. Despite being a pay and play service we offer cheap membership and storage, we offer regular water based activities and provide the organisation and safety cover for most of these events. The reservoir is often used by a variety of users and we plan on increasing the appeal of the water to even more people.But we would like to hear from you. Is there anything you as members would like us to introduce? do more of?do less of? etc. Please contact Adam and we will try to accommodate your ideas.We do realise that the building does limit many activities that we could do. so this year we have been in discussion with Anglian Water (our landlords) and have started preliminary discussions about a new centre. This would be part funded by them and the other part by us. So we have set up a development committee to look at raising funds so we can start to plan a new building. With the new building we hope we can accommodate you, the members, in more comfort. We would like to host more evening events and more fun events so that the membership can enjoy the water a little more and we hope we can encourage you to play a little more.
