ELECTIONS: Rona Cox (Essex), Dr Philip George Hollywood (Essex), Andrew William McLellan (Dorset) and Dmytro Tupchiienko (London) were elected to Ordinary Membership.
The President reminded those present of the forthcoming Summer Meeting on 10 July and urged anyone who still wished to attend to use the online booking facility.

The President then announced the date of the next meeting and closed the meeting.
