2022 AGM

2022 AGM

The Annual General Meeting will take place on Wednesday 23 February at 8 pm.
It's Members Only so no guests until after the meeting, please.
This annual meeting is your chance to hear from your committee about what we've been doing and what we plan to do in the future.
If you have any items for inclusion on the AGM agenda they are to be sent to the Club Secretary by midnight on Tuesday 8 February 2022. Any bids received after this date will not be included in the Agenda.

Open Forum 

After the formalities of the AGM, it is planned to hold an Open Forum discussion where you will have a chance to express your views on some proposals that have been brought up at previous committee meetings but which we thought merit wider discussion.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.

Your Club Membership

Your membership must be renewed by the 31st March 2022. 

Last year's decision to freeze membership subscriptions whilst maintaining continuity of membership until the pandemic situation improved has proven to be the right one. However, now that the Covid regulations have been relaxed it is time to pick up from where we left off in early 2020.

Therefore for you to maintain continuity of membership (Rule 16.2*), your membership must be renewed by 31st March 2022.
Failure to do so will mean that if you currently enjoy Senior membership rates (£20), you will have to rejoin at the Full Membership rate (£25) and not be eligible for Senior membership until March 1st 2023. It will also constitute a break in your membership continuity.
There can be no exceptions to this rule.

Ways to Pay

At the till
An invoice has been generated on our till system which will allow you to pay your annual membership subscription at the bar. A till receipt will be issued when using this method as proof of purchase. Additionally, our database of members will be automatically updated. You may pay by card, cash or cheque.

Pay Online
An invoice will be sent to your email address which has a button allowing you to pay directly from your internet-connected device.

Bank Transfer (BACS)
If you prefer, you may pay for your membership subscription by bank transfer. The Clubs' bank account details will be included in your email.

Membership Fees

Membership fees for 2022-2023 will remain unchanged.
£25 Full Membership
£20 Senior Membership**

**From March 1st 2023 onwards the qualifying age for Senior membership will rise from 65 to 66 in line with the current State Pension age.
Those members who are 65 or older before 1st March 2022  and who qualify under the current rules, will be charged Senior Membership rates.

Membership Cards

2022-23 Membership cards will be printed and issued after 31st March once all subscriptions have been received.

*Rule 16.2

On Dissolution of the Club for whatever reason, the Assets of the Club remaining, after all outstanding costs legally owed by the Club are settled, shall be divided equally between members of the Club who have been Members continuously for the preceding 8 (eight) years (from AGM to AGM). In the case of any objection or grievance whatsoever, the Bere Ferrers Social Club’s current Committee decision with regard to that objection or grievance is final.
