21 Trust members
It was reported to the AGM that John Fletcher, a long-standing member of the Trust Board and former Chair would be standing down from the Board following this AGM. The meeting expressed thanks to John for his support and commitment to the Trust and agreed that he be awarded life membership of the Trust.
The meeting considered a report by the Trust Secretary on the background to and reasons for delay in bringing accounts to the AGM for approval in recent years. He explained that, as permitted by the Trust rules, it had become necessary for the Trust to arrange for the accounts to be subject to Independent Examination rather than audit. Such examination had been carried out.
The meeting then considered the accounts for the financial years ended 31 January 2013, 31 January 2014, 31 January 2015 and 31 January 2016 along with reports by the Independent Examiner on those accounts.
It was unanimously agreed that:
- The report of the Secretary be noted;
- the accounts of the Trust for the four years considered and for future years be the subject of independent examination;
- that the accounts for the the financial years ended 31 January 2013, 31 January 2014, 31 January 2015 and 31 January 2016 be received; and
- surpluses in each of the four years be carried forward to future years.
