We are pleased to announce that we have now appointed Claire Cumberland as Treasurer and Alan Sewell as Deputy Treasurer. Both Claire and Alan are local Bengeo residents. Claire has previous experience as a bank manager and Alan is a qualified accountant who currently acts as Treasurer for Molewood Residents’ Association. We are all completely committed to keeping the Stop Bengeo Quarry accounts clear and transparent and Claire and Alan will ensure finances are handled appropriately.
We have agreed some basic principles on financial management, and these include the following:
- No member of the campaign shall receive remuneration from the SBQ Group, with the exception of out of pocket expenses.
- All funds will be lodged in the Group’s bank account. Any funds paid out will be authorised by the Treasurer or Deputy Treasurer and signed for by one other Officer of the SBQ Group.
- Funds will be paid out for properly incurred expenses and also to pay for professional advice to support the activity of the Group.
- The Group will keep proper accounts of the finances. An independent financial examiner will annually audit the accounts.
