It is with much sadness and a very heavy heart that we have to inform you that one of our well loved members Christine Steedman passed away this morning. 

Christine was a member of Pitreavie Golf Club where she was the current club champion.  She was a great friend to many and loved her golf.  She will be very sorely missed by all. 

Our thoughts and prayers are with all Christine’s family and friends at this sad time.

As we all know this has been rather an unusual year, one which will hopefully not be repeated.

Please click here to view the MVLGA 2019-20 accounts.

We close the year with a reconciled balance of £5922.68.   This takes in any vouchers and cheques that have not been presented.    The presentation of vouchers this year has been extended until the 31st December.

We don’t really have any discrepancies in the accounts other than one of our members forgot to put the “dot” in between £15 and 00 and paid us very generously £1500 for her subscription and one lady from Midland Vets England paid us instead of her own Region – possibly senior moments  - but both reimbursed.   You will notice those in the accounts summary.                                                           

An addition to the role of Treasurer, as we have no Secretary, is membership.  To date we have 167 members plus one on hold and one on medical exemption.   We had 13 new members, 16 resignations and 6 who didn’t reply.

Another additional role is looking after anything regarding the SVLGA.  This year we didn’t pay any dues to them.   With regards to Blairgowrie the ballot that was carried out will stand for 2021.

Mr Nicolas Morris will examine the accounts for next year.

Just a reminder – please remember you have paid your subs for 2020/2021.

I would like to inform the membership that the next AGM Lunch and Prizegiving for the Midland Vets will be Wednesday 20th October 2021 at Glenbervie Golf Club. Unfortunately for us all, season 2020 holds no sunny pictures and memories of our golfing programme in the Midland Vets. However,"Hope springs eternal" and your committee has set in place, a rollover of the fixtures as follows: SPRING MEETING Monday 19th April 2021 Auchterarder Golf Club SUMMER/CHAMPIONSHIP Monday 5th and 6th July Tulliallan Golf Club G'somes Stableford Thursday 12th August Dunnikier Golf Club Autumn Meeting Wednesday 1st September Leven Golf Club Annual Matches Midland vs North Alyth Thursday 6th May " East Mortonhall Thursday 13th May " West Troon Portland Thursday 27th May Our Treasurer, Joan Prentice and the committee on the 2020 fixture card have said they will continue for the rollover into the 2021 season. Dorothy Ford from Scotscraig will take up the Captain's office and is delighted to inform you that her Vice Captain will be Pat Bow from Glenbervie. I will slip into Margaret Tough's position as Past Captain. May I take this opportunity to thank Margaret, on your behalf for her unstinting leadership and support and on a personal level, Margaret, you are not off the hook just yet. As you are aware the post of secretary has been unfilled for two years and it is to Margaret's credit that a new work practice, shared amongst the committee has resulted in an efficient and purposful administration. Thank you to all the committee "gals" for your continuing support. The current membership is S&C 43 members Fife 57 members and P&K 67 members. Everything seems to be nicely "tee"ed up for next season ladies, and lets hope that the VIRUS is under control and we are all able to enjoy our golf courses and the friendship of THE MIDLAND VETS. Best wishes, Liz The Financial Report will follow
