Treasurers Report
Peter Searle presented the end of year accounts, which showed that Chamber is a little better off at the end of this year compared with last year.
To reduce recurring costs further it was agreed to terminate the Chamber BT phone line as since most communication is now by email the line is no longer used.
Peter was thanked for his efforts and Lambert Chapman thankfully acknowledged as carrying out the required independent examination.
