Approval of last minutes
Chairperson’s Review 2014/2015
Suzan Bell gave the following report:
The Tennis Fun Day saw beautiful sunshine and a lovely afternoon of tennis, cream teas and bbq. Unfortunately the weather turned on the Sunday, which affected the Tennis Club’s car boot sale as only a handful of car-boots turned out.
Jango Star entertained the youngsters on Monday. This was very well attended. The weather turned again, and Golf Fun afternoon turned wet and windy.
The Dere Street walk on Tuesday was rather poorly attended and we should perhaps question if this is something we wish to continue with in the future.
Boswells Got Talent returned to Village Week. There was an excellent turn out with fantastic talent from young to old.
Friday was Family Football – it was a lovely evening - what a difference the good weather makes. The vent was very well supported with lots of families mixing and mingling together.
Saturday was the Pet Show which again had a good turn-out despite the weather. A late decision to bring the fancy dress in doors brought a little chaos to the afternoon, but that was felt to be a more favourable option than to have the super fancy dress entries blowing in the wind, losing bits n bobs from their costumes. A last minute addition to the programme was the family disco from 4pm to 6pm which was well attended but perhaps a little too long – something to bear in mind for the future perhaps.
Potted sports and village race was well attended on the Sunday, despite the clash with Cameron Gunn tournament and other local sporting events. The day was finished off by the usual rounders which was enjoyed by all who participated.
Thank you to all the helpers and committee members for the various jobs and tasks they helped out with such as putting up bunting, tables, marques, posters, etc. It was a great team effort from everyone. Thanks especially to Judith and Elaine for their hard work and effort.”
Judith Folan gave the following financial report:
With all the groups receiving funding to cover their costs, £4050 was raised in total to swell the coffers of all those groups who had put on events In the course of the week. Amounts raised were: School - £1556; NP&T - £650; St Boswells Live - £516; Pensioners - £499; Football Club - £227; Cricket Club - £275; and Church - £91.
Looking forward, SBC has confirmed our funding until 2017/18 and we have a healthy bank balance of £6,380. We also now have insurance in place through SBC which allows the Village Race to take place under the auspices of the Village Week Committee rather than the school. We do now though have to complete an annual monitoring form for SBC every year to ensure to ensure we meet the requirements for our funding to continue.”
Judith expressed thanks to Kenny Ovens for once again being kind enough to audit the accounts.
