Dear Fae, As was explained at the AGM the increase in the number of members was the result of a successful membership drive.

Was any analysis done on this afterwards? When reviewing membership it seems likely that the charity's trustees would have been concerned at these figures so shortly before the AGM, due to the potential risk of entryism. Membership jumped from a total of 147 (a five year low) in May 2017, to the all time record high the following month of 498, i.e. new sign-ups that month more than *tripled* the total membership. A second question - the report of membership numbers has been updated every month for the past five years. It has not been updated since October 2017. Could anyone confirm what the most recent membership numbers are so the report can be updated? P.S. the links in the FAQ about the register of members are out of date, the companylawclub link is a 404 error and the companieshouse link advises to go to their new website.
