2022 Calendars

The 2022 calendar will shortly be produced.

These always make good Christmas presents, or are just nice to have at home.

As last year, we are asking members to pre-order the calendar, and these will be hand delivered or posted to distant members, or if we do hold physical meetings in November or December you can collect them then.

A small number may be available for purchase on the night.

The price will be £8.00/copy, with payment on delivery.

If you wish to order a copy, please email Margaret at mjconner100@gmail.com with your details and how many copies you wish to order.

Rutland Natural History Society – Treasurer Wanted

After 8 years service, Margaret has decided to step down as Treasurer and Membership Officer at the next AGM. Tricia Marston has kindly agreed to take over as Membership Officer, so we are just looking for a new treasurer.

The Treasurer is responsible for maintaining the accounts and keeping accurate financial records. Tasks include making payments as required, accounting for money received, and liaising with the Membership Officer about subscriptions.

The Treasurer also makes the annual claim for Gift Aid.
They prepare the accounts and present them to the membership at the Annual General Meeting.

The treasurer will normally attend 4-6 committee meetings annually, and advise on the financial situation, but also be able to input to the Society’s plans and help with other activities as they choose.

It is not essential to have professional accounting knowledge, just to be numerate with a good attention to detail, and ideally an understanding of Excel spreadsheets (but can develop different systems if preferred).

Margaret will continue to be available to handover and help as needed.

If you would like to discuss further what is involved, please contact Margaret on mjconner100@gmail.com or call 01664 454532.
