Rules changes, although it seemed that a specific proposal re length of service on the Committee had been rejected by the Committee at a recent Meeting a variation was obviously put to the AGM.
Minutes not totally clear and no copy of the amended rules to hand. Overall seemed to mean that Committee Members would be limited to two terms of Office, of three years each.
Cufflinks – orders could be made, then an Order would be placed.
A real change of venue. The Marine Club in the basement of 52 Lime Street. A well known and attractive venue. 79 enjoyed an excellent dinner, provided by Quintessance, which it would appear was followed by a very enjoyable Port.
This was a new venue, for many years previously this event had been held at the Guildhall Club, Guildhall, Aldermanbury.
The Dinner probably comprised of:
Supreme of Chicken Princess
Fresh Fruit Salad
The Guest speaker was The Master’s God-Father, Mr Geoffrey Gough who had recently retired from the Court of the Bank of England.
The change of venue was brought about in the main by a change in the pricing structure at the Guildhall Club.
This evening cost £26.50 per person
