·        The hydrotherapy sessions for the Polio Fellowship group started on Friday 6th January and the first session was well received. President Alan and I and Nigel C have been invited to attend one of the latter sessions in February.

·        The sum of £201.25 has been gratefully received from Rob Hart which was one third of the gross takings at his Beer & Carols evening at Nene Court. Rob stipulated that this sum should be donated to the Foundation annual Programme Fund.

·        The committee will be looking at the information sent out by the DG concerning the donation of jars of Wilkins (Tiptree) Jam for distribution to clubs to help support Foundation giving.

·        I shall propose at the meeting that we send an initial donation from the accrued Foundation funds to both the Annual Programme Fund and to Polio.




·        Individual commitment to donate to our giving to the Annual Programme Fund.

·        Continued support for the weekly bonus ball.

·        Please start to log your personal walking to register your 100 miles to celebrate the centenary of our Foundation.

·        Joining our team in association with Community for the Waendal Walk in May to make it at least a ‘100 mile weekend’.
