Conwy Valley Ramblers Treasurer’s AGM Report 2016
The past financial year has been fairly quiet. This has been helped by people booking directly with hotels on away trips, and by North Wales Area paying for navigation and first aid courses.
The error in last years AGM paperwork has been corrected, and the electronic cash book now shows a closing balance of £103 in the self funded entry of the cash book reconciliation page.
The self funded, and main sections of our accounts are in the same bank account, but treasurers are required to differentiate between main, i.e. charity money, and self funded I.e money left over from social events. Self funded money may be used to “top up” short falls on other social events but charity money may not.
We have received £110 from Ramblers Holidays, so thank you to those who booked holidays.
Last November, I claimed the per capita allowance from N. Wales area, which gave us £390. This money was intended for training, but because Area have since funded training, it has not yet been used.
I would like to thank our external examiner, Mr Roger Lee, for once again, going through the accounts.
