4) Correspondence:  None.
5) Monthly practice status: The monthly pracices were discussed. 
Most practices were fine but the practice at Shelsley was poorly attended and Leigh was cancelled because only four people attended. 
Ombersley resulted in a lock out. It was decided that at the AGM we would propose that monthly practice at Leigh, Ombersley, 
Astley and Shelsley be replaced by special practices instead. We would keep the fifth Wednesday practice at Hallow. 
It was mutually agreed with Bromyard to drop the reciprocal fifth Wednesday arrangement.

Marlbrough short break in May was successful.
Martley Guild outing Friday June 19th to Radnorshire was successful.
Walk Friday 31st July to Dodderhill and Salwarp was successful but a poor turnout. We dcecided to drop the walk for 2016.
Evening outing: July 23rd to Croome D'Abbitot, Kempsey, Hanley Swan and Hanley Castle was successful. 
Evening outing August 20th to Coddington and Colwall was successful but limited numbers owing to the funeral of Jim Adams.
