The Annual Members Meeting (‘AGM’) of the BRVS Society was held on 25th April in the Village Hall. The Chairman’s and Treasurer’s reports noted that the shop continues to break even despite slowly declining sales. This relatively successful picture results from Trish’s inspired leadership, Molly’s experienced guidance, careful cost management and above all from our volunteers’ efforts which are, of course, freely given. Some of the team are shown in the photo in the picture gallery and this will feature in the 2019 Brompton Regis Calendar.
In discussion at the meeting, suggestions were made for gaining greater publicity (and, hence, sales!) for the shop. These are being progressed as appropriate and will be reported on in due course. Another item discussed has already been actioned: a charge will no longer be levied on card sales.
With no further names submitted for election to the Management Committee, the current incumbents were re-elected en bloc: Phil Barnard (Chairman/Secretary); Chris Pollard (Treasurer); Molly Routledge; Jenny Phillips; Sue Elsden and Jan Neves.

We all thank you, our customers, for your support and trust that together we can keep our community shop in robust health.
A reminder for our photography hobbyists. Su Elsden (email@example.com) will be most grateful to receive your pictures for the 2019 Brompton Regis Calendar (and cards), now in development following the success of the 2018 launch issue. The production lead time means she is already coming under pressure. Photographs should be of Brompton Regis and its surrounding area but can be from any earlier period as well as contemporary pictures. Hopefully, there will also be plenty of images of the recent snow and the multitude of lambs currently adorning our hillsides.

A reminder that fresh vegetables and fruit may be ordered in the shop for next day delivery. Also, if you have any spare bedding plants or other surplus garden stock, Trish will be delighted to take them off your hands for sale in the shop.
A final request: please let Trish or one of the volunteers know if there are any other products or brands you would like the shop to stock, and we’ll try to oblige.
