Welcome to the first issue of HQ Info-Line for 2014. I hope you all had an enjoyable Christmas and celebrated the arrival of the New Year.
Debby is away on leave, returning to re-open the office on Tuesday 22 January. If you have only just paid your subscription for 2014, these will be processed with haste to ensure that you receive your first issue of Break-In for 2014. However, the mailing list does need to be at the contractors in Christchurch by January 23, so if your payment is received after this date, your Jan/Feb copy will be delayed as it will be posted from HQ once copies of Break-In are received.
Officers annual reports are now due. Please send them to Debby at HQ as soon as possible. These need to be on hand for the next Council meeting on 15 February.
