B.        Treasurers Report
 
 Report on the accounts of the London Irish Bowling Association as at 30th September 2021
 
 As we have not held an AGM since 2020 I have produced two sets of accounts which I will explain.
With the decision made at the 2020 AGM to revert back to holding the Association's AGMs in January I have produced a set of accounts for January 2020 - 30 September 2020 i.e. 9 months and not the 10 months reported in the 2020 AGM minutes. This so as to coincide with the end of the Outdoor season. Effectively the Association's accounting period is now 1st October to 30th September which is the whole of one Indoor season and the whole of one Outdoor Season. A set of accounts for 1st October 2020 to 30th September 2021 has therefore been produced.
 
There is, as you would expect, very little to report. For the accounts 1st January to 30th September 2020 essentially we had a brief period when we bowled indoors January 2020 to March 2020 when we got a little income which covered the small amount of expenditure and also provided a modest profit. For the accounts 1st October 2020 to 30th September 2021 when the Association did not bowl there was just two items of expenditure.
 
At the end of the day we remain very comfortably placed with £4412.41 in our Bank account and Cash in Hand.
 
The accounts for the 9 months 1st January 2020 - 30th September 2020 have been partially audited - Andy Docker undertook this when we last met as a committee on 19th May 2021. I have also produced accounts for the year 1st October 2020 to 30th September 2021 which at the time of writing have not been audited.

Hon. Treasurer
