After discussion and an explanation from the Hon Sec and support from the Hon Auditor it was agreed that in future Minutes could be in typed format and inserted in a loose leaf folder – not in a specific Minutes Book, so long as the sequence was clearly defined. “This was in line with Modern Practice.”
N.B. As there were still a few pages left in the Original Minute Book, the Club did not go to a loose leaf folder until the 1973 AGM, the typed Minutes being glued into the Minutes Book.

Committee Meeting 15th November Sion College
Mr Christopher Rawson has been elected as alderman for Lime Street Ward
Mr J Evan-Cook has been elected as a Common Councillor for Lime Street Ward
Discussions re the Combined Ward Club Event – I think it lost money in 1972 – where there was a proposal that a new Committee be formed for 1973 and onwards.
It was being proposed that the 1973 event ticket price would be 9.00p per person. It was felt that 18.00p per couple was to high given the other events in the year many people would attend.
The Ward Club representatives (Master and Hon Sec) were asked to put this proposal forward to the Event Committee in January.
