On the subject of change please remember to amend the RI data base if you gain or regrettably lose a member in addition to notifying me as set out below.

The address for Brian Burton, President Elect of the Erdington Club is incorrect in the new directory. Brian’s address should read 162. See attachment.

June Barley, Secretary of Redditch, has had to change her email address. See attachment.

Raffles etc:

Please note that in order to promote a raffle, an organisation, including a society set up for charitable purposes, does require to register with the local authority. The application fee is £40 with an annual fee of £20 once granted, that is at my local authority. It could vary. The local authorities will supply guidance notes and application forms.

1060 news

It would be extremely helpful if at least one member from each Club is signed up to 1060 news. A sign up page is available on the District web site via “For Members & Clubs” then “New web site” and then “ Internet resources”. Contact Dave Roberts, District web master and Membership Resources Team Leader with any queries.

If one or more of your members wish to see the Job Description for AG’s it can be found on the RIBI web site using the following link: Alternatively I can send a PDF version by email

Email addresses

Please do not forget to let me have any changes in Secretaries’ email addresses. That is the principal method of communication so if you don’t keep me informed you will not receive the relevant documents.

Membership Changes

Please let me have any changes in Membership numbers, gains or losses, so that the statistical information can be kept up to date. Information is welcome by e mail, letter or via the web site link.
