Chairs statement – 2017 AGM
In my last statement I would first like to thank all of the committee for their support over the last few years. In particular Glynis, Alison and Paul who continue to be pillars of the club.
The last year has seen the club continue in good health with excellent numbers for both Friday nights and competitive. This is very much down to the efforts of the Friday team and the extension of the offered teaching sessions that has been introduced.
Competitive remains strong with good coaching and leadership from our head coach Neil who has been aided by James Goddard. This appointment has been a big success and I hope that the club continues to raise enough revenue to maintain payment for both positions.
As the older group of swimmers naturally dwindles the club seems to have embraced the Masters swimmers and I hope that this is an area that can continue without negative impact on the rest of the competitive section.
Dave Crabtree has supplied me with the latest medal tally which is on the website and which is a testament to the hard work of all at Romiley.
We do at last seem to be making progress on Swim 21 thanks in no small part to Joanne who is driving this. My apologies to her that I have not had time to contribute. I hope the momentum continues and that the club does achieve the Mark.
Child welfare seems to be more of an issue now and we are lucky to have Becky managing this for us and taking a lead in all welfare matters. This should be reassuring to the committee and to parents and children involved with the club. I would like to thank Becky for her efforts in what is never an easy role.
Finally I wish our new Chairman all the best in the role and am sure he will do his best for the club. I have already told Ian that I will help in any way I can and I hope I can maintain links with the club but feel it is best for someone who is more actively involved to take on the roll.
Treasurers Report 10th May 2017
Draft Accounts 2016/17 and Forecast 2017/18
The draft accounts for 2016/17 is showing an operating surplus of £605. This is much better than recent forecasts and can be primarily attributed to the very high levels of membership and subscription collection over the past few months. Of particular note is the higher cost of the annual ASA charges. Note, the club pays the new members’ ASA fees when they join and again each March. The double hit on ASA fees is covered by the Admin Fee levied of £25/member.
- Forecast for 2017/18
The pool hire cost has now been obtained for 2017-18 based on the diary dates previously circulated to the committee. In total, pool hire will amount to £34,051. (Note small refunds are also expected. Apparently, there are no opportunities for additional pool time for the main pool preceeding our existing sessions. Membership subscription levels are high, particularly the Friday night section (now in excess of 140). There doesn’t appear to be any immediate need to increase subscriptions for 2017/18 and there should be sufficient funding to retain James Goddard on his current 4.75 hours/week. The forecast doesn’t include any provision yet for the purchase of new lane ropes and storage equipment.
