AGM 2016 - Chairman's Report

The BFA's 2016 AGM was held on Wednesday 17th February at 7.30pm in the Forest Room.  

I was able to report that we had slightly exceeded our financial aim of breaking even. Our events and normal activities for 2015 generated a small profit of £291 which we can use to subsidise events in 2016.

Our regular events have once again proved very popular in 2015 and the committee have decided to repeat the format once again in 2016.
