piggy bankOur Chairman has asked me to inform our membership that due to unforseen circumstances there is a delay in publishing last year's accounts. Nothing sinister here but family concerns and duties do take priority. The accounts once audited will, as usual, be published on this website and of course, on the Charities Commission for England and Wales http://apps.charitycommission.gov.uk/Showcharity/RegisterOfCharities/registerhomepage.aspx and the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator http://www.oscr.org.uk/
