held on March 28th

The committee had called a vote on the proposal to change the start of the membership year from July 1st to April 1st starting this year, and to therefore charge a membership fee for this year (2017-18) of £10 + £3.50 Capitation Fee rather than the usual £13 + £3.50.
It will revert to the full price in 2018-19.
The vote was carried unanimously barring 1 abstention.
