Well attended meeting – 30 in all including 2 guests, Jean Jaggermouth for the second time who will hopefully be joined as a member next week and Rod Burns from West One Maintenance.
It is always good to induct a new member. Anita Reynolds is our newest recruit – welcome Anita.
The multi tasking Mike Rogers performed the dual feat in the 60 second round of judging the Oscar and being our bell man. The strain started to show towards the end, but he got through it! Paul Booth was the worthy Oscar winner; deserved if for no other reason than he had the temerity to get 4 other members up and on their feet putting their hands on each others shoulders and passing monopoly money. I think the central point was that there are lots of complicated situations where he can help you out. Certainly Messrs. Carmichael-Brown, Bullock, Lewer and Shaw gently embracing one another needed sorting out and I think he managed to handle a very difficult situation very well, albeit of his own making.
Nick Cooke responded to Scott’s warnings over dress code earlier in the week by sporting a rather smart suit which offset those who wore jeans (no names no pack drill).
Scott’s success in getting top ups for coffee and tea was only slightly dented by the top ups being made before everybody had even finished eating. This would appear to be work in progress, but a step in the right direction – well done Scott.
Nick Cooke reported upon the Property Power Group meeting that occurred during the week. As one of those in attendance I can reveal that a substantial proportion of the meeting was spent brow beating Nick Morgan to join. It became clear that a sign writer would be a very useful addition to the group and if Nick does join, the Property Power Group meeting can be judged to have been a great success.
Clearly a sign writer was something that Dawn Ribnell felt would be useful to the group from her point of view as she set out her wares in her excellent 10 minute slot. She showed what she can produce to very good effect.
There was a good referrals round with many referrals. Scott confirmed recorded business of £115,000.00 for last month. Let us see if we can beat it for this month.
Despite Adrian being unable to attend he successfully organised the form setting out future social events and everyone seemed to fill this in with enthusiasm. We await further developments on the social front.
Looking forward to seeing you all next week.
Aidan Squire, Group Chairman.
