Treasurer’s Report

Year ending 31st December 2018

The section has returned a deficit of £817 in 2018. This deficit is not of a great concern to the section because, it was not unexpected, it follows two successive years of substantial surplus in our accounts and it can lead to cost savings in future years.

I’d like to put on record our appreciation to our members whose donations be it financially, or in time sustain our events such as the agility show, training events and the various leagues. Were it not for donations such as this the section would not only be running at a more significant loss but would simply not operate at all.

I can state that the auditor was happy with the state of the section’s finances for 2018.

Sadly this will be my last report as treasurer as both Rhoda and I have stood down from the Committee. 

We have been on the Committee since 2010 and I have been treasurer for 8 years. It is nice to leave seeing the section’s finances significantly more secure than 9 years ago which hopefully can be used as a basis for the section’s future. 

Between us we have put a lot of time and effort into the section over the last 9 years, including being treasurer, running the accounts, the Sheltie Agility show, the annual awards, the Agility League, the section website and Facebook group and of course Sheltie Camp too. It has been an enjoyable time (although I definitely will not miss the day of completing the accounts between Christmas and New Year every year!) It has been great to see where our efforts have made a difference to our members just like it did for us when we first joined.

I must admit we do feel some guilt and reluctance to resigning but it has become very clear we can no longer perform the job on the Committee we hoped to be able to do. We would be very sad to see any impact particularly to the Agility Show, a long standing event that so many members (and non-members) enjoy and benefit from. In the event that the Agility Show was likely to be lost, we have therefore offered to continue to co-ordinate and run that event to keep it going.

To conclude, I’d like to thank the Committee and wish them best wishes for the future of the section.
