APRIL COMMITTEE MEETING



The Branch committee were concerned about the rising cost of living with the consequent increase in expenditure, balanced against the rapidly decreasing level of Plymouth Parkinsonís branch funds.


They reluctantly decided that the member contributions for taxis and exercise classes would have to be increased. There has not been any increase in memberís contributions since the classes first began in 2003, therefore the member contribution as from 11th April 2017 was increased to £5 per session for the exercise classes (carer free) and to £2 each way per person (carer free) = total £4 return per person for the taxis.


These costs continue to be subsidised from branch funds and still provide the members with substantial savings on both the full taxi fare and exercise class expenses.



Dr. Amir Abdalla has stepped down from the role of Vice-President of the branch (due to going on sabbatical leave). We are delighted that Dr. Camille Carroll has accepted our invitation to take on this presidency role.



At the April meeting, our retired Treasurer Pat Bennet was thanked for her 25years of Stirling service and presented with a gift and a bouquet of flowers by Janet Creber.
