After Belper & Duffield's Charter last night, it was back to more run of the mill fare today starting with a meeting with with Conference Director David pedlar at St. James' Place Wealth Management, Nottingham, the company that had provided sponsorship for the District Conference. The purpose was a de-brief to find out how it had been for both parties - the result of which was good on both sides and importantly to pick up a cheque for the remaining sponsorship, for which we were truly grateful.
Having dropped David back at his home I then went on to The Novotel for a meeting with the District Membership Officer and Assistant Governor Roger Summers, looking for ways to help clubs where membership is falling and the age profile is rising. We had some useful discussions, but we will have to wait some time to see if the ideas bear fruit.
I spent the remainder of the afternoon earning a living before visiting my youngest daughter, Sarah and her family at Burton for the evening.
