Quote from President, George Donkin; "During the financial year [2012/13] the Society successfully completed three major projects. These developments, and others planned, are vitally important to the Society’s future. We must grow profitably if we are to cover our overhead costs, continually improve our trading standards for our members and customers, and have a prosperous long term future with opportunities for career development for our colleagues.
Quote from Don Morris Chief Executive and Secretary [2012/13 annual report]; "The growth of the Society and the investments being made in our operations have been funded by retained earnings. The Society maintains a strong balance sheet with significant cash investments and no borrowings. During these tough economic times, these firm foundations remain essential to the success of the Society. As always, it gives me great pleasure to acknowledge the hard work and commitment of our colleagues and the support and loyalty of our members and customers, the success of the Society can only be achieved with this continued support.
