As the outgoing Chairman, Andrew talked about our AGM held in April and the feeling was overall that it had been a very positive meeting and had received good feedback. The Celebrity Panel had been v.interesting and was something that could be repeated. However, we felt that for next years AGM we should to look at alternative ideas.
Summer Charity Dinner Dance, Boringdon Park Golf Club, Saturday June 18th
Simon has been hard at work sorting out this event. He has now booked the venue, Boringdon Park Golf Club and the entertainment. We have a resident disco and also 2 x 60 minute sets by a band called the Decibelles, who come highly rated. Michele has volunteered to help Simon with any organising that may be needed and Trevor and Keith also agreed to help.
We reached a decision on the menu options and once a main Sponsor has been approved we will be ready to print. Keith is willing to undertake the design and print of flyers and the tickets.
We are looking for sponsorship for the Band (£550) Disco (£180) Table decorations (aprox £8 per table) Drinks on arrival (£2.50) and also raffle prizes.
Newnham Neighbourhood Meeting
Keith and Nigel recently were invited to attend a meeting at Newnham Community Centre to talk about the Plym Chamber and how we wish to be a part of the Plympton community. Local councillors were also present. This was very well received, offers of having flyers about the Chamber were given and Keith is now expecting more invitations from other local Community Centres in the Plympton area so that we can spread the word about the Chamber.
Steve has offered to send out renewal notices and DDs to all our existing members and any other interested parties. Any follow up calls to members will be undertaken by Nigel as agreed at the last meeting.
Steve is regularly updating the website and there are no issues at present.
Any Other Business
Trevor has now organised a newsletter which he will be sending to Steve to put on the website and send out to existing members. This will be a quarterly newsletter and will hopefully be seen as added value.
We have booked the Dartmoor Zoo for our first breakfast club meeting, which will be on Tuesday 7th June at 7am. Costs for this breakfast will be paid on entry at £8 per head. We will be sending out invitations to this meeting to all our existing membership.
The Date for the next meeting has been agreed for Wed 1st June. It would be appreciated if anyone unable to attend could email their apologies in advance please.
