The Whitby, Scarborough & Ryedale DAG Annual General Meeting took place on Tuesday 20th November 2018, starting at 12.30pm at Church House Centre, Flowergate, Whitby, YO21 3BA. The meeting was attended by 19 DAG Members, Trustees and staff. As the meeting took place over lunchtime, a light lunch was provided, prepared by staff and volunteers.

The minutes from the AGM in 2017 were approved, as were our annual accounts and annual report for 2017-18. The meeting also agreed to appoint Philip Burley & Co as our accountants for 2018-19.

The Trustees were elected by postal ballot. The results were announced at the meeting:- Barbara Booth, Susan Harty, Mike Hutchinson, Jacqui Jobling, Sally Williams and Hilda Wray were all re-elected.

Members were introduced to two new members of staff - Lynne Lawson, Creative Arts Worker, and Neil Daniel, Membership Worker. The meeting discussed the 2019-20 Membership subscription (Members approved the proposal that it should stay the same as 2018-19).  Neil outlined the plans for upcoming Christmas events.

Peter Richardson from Wetwheels Yorkshire gave a very entertaining presentation and slide show about Wetwheels Yorkshire's first year based in Whitby, as well as sharing some plans for the future.
