Our accounts were approved and the County Treasurer, Paul Weeks announced that our County levy would remain unchanged at £11.50 for 2021. However the County would be providing £2 relief per member to reflect the impact of Covid-19 and increased membership fees from HQ. (In reality the County will be invoicing £9.50 per member in 2021) Districts have been asked to mirror the County relief with similar schemes if appropriate.


The following presentations were made remotely:
