Readers of Organists’ Review will no doubt recall the feature article about our KCOA published in the November 2006 issue and the reference in the opening paragraph to a "good tea". There are occasional instances when the expectations of some members are not met, and I think this is a pity, because some members will have travelled a considerable distance in order to attend.
Generally we get good value for the £3.00 collected at teatime, but not all of this goes to those who have provided tea. It has been our practice for some years now to make a donation of £30.00 to churches we visit, and in 2001 the committee decided to collect £3.00 at teatime so as to avoid taking the whole of the donations out of funds. Normally £2.00 goes to those who have provided tea with £1.00 being retained towards donations. However, this is a guideline, not a hard and fast rule; occasionally we hand over more for tea, sometimes less.
This practice means that, by and large, annual subscriptions cover the cost of printing the Journal twice a year, the general expenses of running the association and the IAO capitation fee of £3.00
