AGM and New Venue.

The Sunday 15th November meeting included the club's Annual General Meeting for the election of the branch officers for the coming year. On this occasion there were no changes and all of the previous incumbents were re-elected unopposed.

George Green proposed that the competition theme for 2016 should be "The Best of British" - anything that is predominantly British in content, which was unanimously approved.

The major decision was the move to a new venue in the new year. While we have had no problems with the management and staff of Kings Heath Community Centre, regrettably the same cannot be said of Birmingham City Council Finance Department who, despite us having paid in advance for the room hire, persist in sending payment demands culminating recently in our Treasurer, Matt Nicholls receiving a communication from a debt collection agency. This is a totally unacceptable situation which has forced us to seek an alternative venue and Matt fairly quickly located somewhere suitable.

So, from January 2016 our new venue will be:

Longbridge Methodist Church
Reception/cafe Area
1654/8 Bristol Road South,
B45 9TY

Meetings will continue to be on the third sunday of each month but will start half an hour later than at present - 3.30 to 6.00 PM.

Meanwhile, the December 2015 meeting/Christmas party will be at Kings Heath Community Centre as usual.
