Treasurer's Report and Fund-raising – £450 in current account. The stall in the Cathedral crypt for the Dickens Festival gained £4.60 in donations towards postage and £13 from the sale of Christmas cards. We decided to send £100 to AIUK - proposed Ian, seconded Carol, carried no objection. We also discussed the motions for the Extraordinary General Meeting called for 12th January 2013. Members will vote as they see fit, either in person or by proxy. Details available from www.amnestyegm.com
Dickens Festival Report - it was generally felt that there were fewer people in the crypt and thus less interest. As there will probably be no tables in the crypt for 2013 we discussed the possibility of asking for a table in the Cathedral.
