2017 WP GUILD REPORT – HONORARY GENERAL TREASURER’S REPORT

l have pleasure in presenting my report and accounts of the Central Fund and Central Reserve Fund for the year ended 31st December 2016. This being my  first year in the post; I would like to  take this opportunity to thank all those who have patiently answered my questions and given advice.

During the year, it was decided to set up a designated Training and Development Fund, and the Income and

Expenditure Account shows amounts added to this Fund separately from the General Fund. To date, no payments have been made from the Training and Development Fund.

Income from all sources remained steady and income from Districts is shown in the table below. The decision in 2015 to reduce the amount per subscription payable to the Bell Restoration Fund from £4 to £2 has led to an increase in the amounts payable to the General Fund but this increase will not become apparent until the accounts for 2017 are completed.

Total balances at the year-end have increased modestly and are sufficient for foreseeable needs.

District subscriptions were received/as follows:

            2016

Ros Brandwood – Elected as Guild Treasurer July 2016

As the new Honorary Guild treasurer, I would like to introduce myself with a brief paragraph.
I learnt to ring many years ago in Devon but, like a lot of ringers, had a ‘break’ when other things seemed to get in the way.  However, I resumed ringing when I came to live in Burghclere, near Newbury, and have been tower captain there, as well as Treasurer for the Andover District, for the last few years.  I would describe my ringing as more ‘Sunday service’ than ‘peal board’ but like to think that ringers of all abilities can play their part in the Guild community. 
As a retired chartered accountant, I have been encouraged to take on the role of Guild Treasurer as Mike Bubb steps down after a fantastic 30 years in the post.  I know I have a very hard act to follow, but trust that members will bear with me while I get to grips with the job.
