The new chair of Laurencekirk Scout Group has thanked all parents, leaders, troop members and the wider community for their fundraising efforts and support over the past year.
At the 2010 Annual General Meeting of the Laurencekirk Scout Group Council on Tuesday 23rd March, Avril Nicoll was appointed Group Chair, Nanette Brown Group Secretary and Ross McWhinnie Group Treasurer. The proposal to have an Assistant Treasurer was also accepted and Gordon Nicoll was appointed. Other Executive Committee members are Mandy Mowat, Gregor Watson and Helen Kelly. The Executive Committee intends to encourage parents of Beavers to join over the next few months.
The 2009-10 Annual Report includes an overview of the many and varied activities undertaken by the Beaver, Cub and Scout sections.
Helen Kelly presented an interim financial statement. She was thanked for her hard work as Group Treasurer over the past 3 years. Douglas Gauld was appointed as independent examiner of the accounts, and the group is extremely grateful to him for providing this service. An Extraordinary General Meeting will be called to approve the examined accounts in due course.
The Executive Committee proposal for termly payment of fees has been explained to every parent in the group. This was supported and will come into play after the summer holidays. Parents wishing to pay a termly fee from Easter to Summer should ask their Section Leader about this after the Easter holidays.
