The main points coming out of the meeting are as follows:
- £100 donations were made from the profits of the Shobdon Wood race to: Wigmore High School (for use of their playing field), to Emergency First Responders (first aid cover) and to the Breast Cancer Care Haven in Hereford.
- Discussion of how to persuade late payers of subs (which makes life difficult for the membership secretary and the the treasurer particularly) to pay up: they would be barred from the club Facebook page, and it was suggested they not be permitted to run in the summer or winter league (UKA in fact make this a rule), or club events like the handicap races. While not paid up, such ‘members’ are not insured, and late payment merely reduces the length of their cover – unnecessarily.
- There was discussion of a possible summer social activity, maybe even informally after a race, on a fine day. It was thought past efforts (viz. social 2 years ago, multi-events, duathlon) would not be well supported.
