A letter was received from chief fund-raiser and programme secretary Doreen Lenton who is also resigning through ill health.

Officerl elected were: Chairman, Edith Jones; secretary, June Dempsey; treasurer, Anne Lombardo; committee, Shay Lynn, Lesley Wright, Edna McGoff, Vi Leeper, Carol Goodyear and Marie Whittlesea.

After the annual meeting members enjoyed a social evening and an impromptu display of Christmas decorations by Vi Leeper.
