Treasurers Comment:  

“One third of the financial year completed. We are tracking slightly ahead of budget on   income (giving has gone up and we had a good result from the plant sale) and slightly   behind on expenditure. We have however paid all our insurance so in reality we are doing okay. Projecting forward we do have some biggish items coming up so am anticipating keeping close to budget. Well done everybody.”
