Province of Wessex Accounts for the year to 30th April 2016 Treasurers Report Brethren, I hereby submit my report on the accounts for the year ended 30th April 2016 being a year of change with myself only being appointed to this role at the investiture meeting in December, the first seven months of this year being control of my predecessor. The income from court fees being the annual dues from the eight courts to the Province. New members fees being new and joining members entering the Order during the year and Fees of honour being that charged to Provincial Officers on appointment. The Regalia sales represents the onward sale of ties, lapel pins and the occasional jewel, and finally a charge for a dispensation granted for a change venue. The year book expenses are for entries into several Provincial Year books across the various Craft provinces that we straddle. The Provincial meeting costs represent the loss incurred at the two meetings held this year being the annual meeting in May and the investiture meeting in December. The other expenses was largely postage and stationary costs. The regalia purchases represents the purchase of the ties and lapel pins for resale but also the purchase of twelve past provincial officers collar jewels (£244) of which eleven are still held in stock along with various other oddments of regalia. The purchase of and the engravingcosts of a plaque for the provincial sword stand. The costs of the running the provincial webb site was £35. Finally the Province donated £500 to the Cygingston 10-90 appeal. This then leaves a deficit on the year of £406 mainly driven by the large donation, regalia purchases for stock and the completion of the sword stand. Although not well blessed with funds I do not foresee these key drivers being repeated in the year to come. J. Michael Daniels Provincial Grand Treasurer
