Calendar; events

  • Some discussion about the number of bus trips – whether the current level suits our needs.
    • Nazir has booked November Skyline bus trip
    • Nazir has booked a suitable bus (depending on numbers) for Rimutaka Incline event 9 November – only pickup @ ASB
  • Lynda will ask Wim to liaise with Hutt Valley Runners to have shared events each year – not sure where this is at.
  • Persephone has been attempting to extend out booking at the ASB in 2020 until 11:30 in Sundays. She has sent two emails so far, with no response.
  • Judith presented some ideas on running a children’s pack. We’re not convinced there is a demand for this, but are proposing an Open Day in February 2020 with a special Children’s Event, to test the waters.

Special events sub-Committee

  • Times Cinema successfully held on 14 September.
  • Andy McNeill memorial event on 20 October; Persephone will ask members for grocery items; few WMC members have registered, so we need to push this on Sundays; next sub-committee meeting 9 October.

Admin, website

  • Thanks to Persephone for doing the September newsletter.


  • Mike gave an overview of the results of the name change survey: of 34 responses, 25 were in favour, 9 against; Mike will present this in the September newsletter.
  • Life membership needs two-thirds majority at AGM. Mike will talk to Gordy about his nomination as Life Member, and all committee members to canvas other members (to avoid ‘surprises’).

The meeting closed at 8.45 pm, with thanks for participation.
