Treasurers report & accounts

Leeds Group Annual Return year ended 30/9/2016 Treasurers Report


Leeds Group has very little expenditure. We hire a room at the Methodist Centre for our committee meetings at £28.50 a time 3 to 4 times a year. We hold our AGM at different venues but hire of hall is less than £50. We have our own web site & hosting this site did cost us around £30pa. This year they wanted to charge us £135. This has prompted a move to a different host organised by a group of fellow Ramblers. The cost of this will be born by Ramblers Central Office so our only expenditure will be £6pa for our domain name of “Leedsramblers.org.uk” We cannot transfer our existing site to a new host so I am in the process of building a new web site.

 Our basic allowance from Area for next year will be £642 & is more than adequate for our needs.

 Our income comfortably exceeds group expenditure. When it builds up as it has done this year to a sum of £1900 we must look to either forgoing any further funds from Area until the balance has reduced or spend it. We have for 2016 decided to make a further donation to Leeds City Council of £1500 to improve footpath signposting & waymarking in the Leeds area provided Leeds Council match our donation £ for £. Leeds City Council has accepted this offer & committee members will be working with the Council to ensure signs are placed where needed

 Thanks once again to John Miles who has independently examined the accounts
