D and B District Leisure Group – the Sports Hall project
The 2017 AGM was held at Birnam Arts on 12th December. The Chairman Kevin Lancaster thanked all the committee members for their work over the past year. He reported on discussions with the Recreation Club, which is consulting in the community about its future planning; this has revived hopes that an indoor sports facility might still be a realisable possibility. He also reported on the continuation of the annual award to the Royal School of Dunkeld in memory of Robbie Melvin, including the Citizenship Trophy.
The Treasurer Margaret Scott presented the annual accounts which were approved, and Bill Nicoll was thanked for his work as auditor and was reappointed. (The accounts are available from the Secretary on request.) Future fundraising and publicity were discussed, including having a stall at the Birnam Games on 25th August.
The following office bearers were elected: Chair: Kevin Lancaster, Vice Chair: Graham Rees, Treasurer: Margaret Scott, Secretary: Alasdair Wylie, Minutes Secretary: Andrea Cox, Committee Members: Peter Guthrie, Bill Wright, Adam Flint.
It was agreed that the 2018 AGM will be held earlier, on 13th September. The next Committee Meeting will be on 20th February.
The Secretary Alasdair Wylie reported on contact with Kirsteen Ross, Community Sports Hub Co-ordinator at Live Active Leisure who has shown a keen interest in possibilities in Dunkeld and Birnam. The Chair closed the AGM with thanks to all for attending, and there followed a productive discussion with Stuart Paton, Chair of the Recreation Club and with David and Lorna Tripney of the Tennis Club about future plans.
