Bays group committee re-elected for another year
The Bays Community Group president Ms Gwynneth Weir and last year's committee have all been re-elected at the group's annual meeting on Wednesday last week, February 17.
"One new person agreed to stand and was also elected to the committee," said Ms Weir.
Ms Ally Chuang was re-elected as vice president, and Ms Lina Nguyen and Mr Dean Wignell were re-elected as joint secretaries.
Ms Marie Davies agreed to take on the role of treasurer.
In her President's Report, Ms Weir said the group had remained solvent, despite the impact of the coronavirus.
It had not been possible to hold any fund raising events between March and the end of September, she said.
Consequently, financial reserves from the previous year had been used to pay the regular bills and for the basic upkeep of the hall.
"During the latter part of the year the Bays Community Group had been able to start raising funds again by offering takeaway bacon and egg rolls on the last Sunday of the month and hiring out the hall for yoga classes," Ms Weir said.
"Both of these offerings had proved to be popular and will continue during 2021."
Ms Weir said that with restrictions easing, the committee had many ideas for fund-raising events this year.
She said she was optimistic that in 2021 sufficient funds would be raised to at least break even.
