Regeneration Group – Chairman’s Report 2017

Firstly I would sincerely thank you all for your support during the past year, particularly those who serve on the committee, organise the annual Garden and Craft Show and produce the newsletter.  These activities rely on our untiring Treasurer who will produce an update regarding the accounts as of this past year.

Revenue from the sale of the cards has been constant; there is always a demand for them with the most popular ones having to be re-printed each year.

This year’s Garden and Craft Show was deemed to be the best ever. With entries up, competitor numbers up and revenue up it was a real boost for the organisers after several years of decline. An effort will be made to increase the children’s entries for the 2018 show, by urging the school to promote relevant classes during the summer term.
 
Clecs Bro Cader has become an unprecedented success judging by the way it has been cleared from the shelves of the retail outlets within days of its appearance. The whole layout, especially the coloured front and rear pages has made a tremendous difference to peoples’ perception of it, our thanks go to all the editorial committee but especially the typesetter who makes it look so well laid out.  In fact we should be very proud of it.
 
We are also most grateful to Statkraft for the continued finance to produce it during this and previous years; without the help generated by the windfarm it just could not be produced in the volume it currently is.
Finally, don’t let us forget the so important Distributors, who, come rain or shine, cold or hot, wend their way along tracks or garden paths, cross farmyards and risk pesky dogs to deliver copies of the latest masterpiece.
 
We were lucky to have some young helpers at both Clean Ups this year, we are most grateful to all who do their bit to help, either on or before the actual day. None of us are getting any younger!!
 
Thank you again, to each and every one of you here tonight (and those unable to attend) for all you have contributed, not only in this past year but in the previous years too.
