On October 1st the Trustees will hold the OutdoorLads Annual General meeting. This is an important legal requirement and at the meeting we will ask you to vote to approve the Accounts. 

You can view the Accounts, and the Annual report at

These accounts have been approved by the independent auditor who works, not for the Trustees, but for you - the members. 

If you have any questions please submit them to the Treasurer ( before September 29th. We will acknowledge and answer all questions at the meeting. Of course you can also pose questions at the meeting but you are likely to get a more detailed answer if your question is submitted before hand.

The Trustees are committed to running financially secure, well governed charity and this is an important part of that process.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on October 1st.
