Membership Cards / Discounts

Park this until after the AGM. Give this to cabinet responsibility group to investigate, also investigate cheaper coach provider, room hire, and local discounts.


Ideally looking for a current member to volunteer 1 hour a week to support with the Admin of the Club.


This could tie in with Engagement and comms FLM

Schedule of Events for the rest of the year


For 2017 we have:


Valentines Quiz Friday 17th February


Uttoxeter Midlands National 18th March



Darts Thursday 23rd March



Easter Prize Draw


Golf Day (May 2017, exact date TBC)


Theatre shows



The above will cover the first 6 months – need to consider how much we have in the bank and be mindful of how much trips etc are costing us.


Ideas for the last 6 months of the year included:-


Discussion regarding asking Planning to support in facilitating colleagues with shift swaps etc to allow people to attend events – should this be clearer on comms materials.

Colleague Feedback / Induction


The slide is ready for the Colleague induction (just needs to be inserted)


Mechanism for gathering feedback to be considered (using the tablet etc)


Key objective this year is to encourage colleague participation and get people involved in supporting the running of the club. Brief to FLMs on facilitating colleagues in attending.



Currently 118 members


Auditing of the Club

RB to ask Adam who can complete this process for the club – chased up and awaiting update as we need to ensure an audit is complete asap.



Re – freshed notice board  - Should we have our photos up alongside the jobs that we complete for the club. This would raise members awareness of how and who to submit any ideas or feedback to.


JY – other trips to consider, Drayton Manor, Alton Towers, Casino night, Murder Mystery night, Escape rooms, Flip out, Outdoor events, Paintballing, Go Karting


KB – Could you purchase gifts / prizes / days out through groupon?
