Hope everyone has survived the great floods of
2013/2014. On the bright side we should not see
a hosepipe ban in the summer of 2014 - the
reservoirs must be full to the brim by now.

The club accounts will be audited on 6th March when
Derek Boon returns from his travels. Clearly all paperwork will be winging
up to Mark for inclusion in the next DLN.

Donations and subscriptions have continued to be received by either Dave
Haggart or myself, so thank you once again to all those involved there, don't
forget that I can claim a small amount of tax from donations made by UK
tax payers from HMIC, so what ever you donate we get a little more in
return. As the saying goes, every little helps.
