LONDON'S exclusive Catholic club, the ChalIoner, continues to be beset with problems after this week's annual general meeting was declared invalid due to a technicality.
Members had gathered to discuss the club's recent decision to end its seven-year agreement with Hill House School ion Knightsbridge, which has used spare rooms in the building to teach 180 of its 1100 pupils. Also on the agenda was a motion of no confidence in the chairman, Sir Albert McQuarrie, and the entire board of directors.
Club director Alan Jackson said a new meeting would be held in three weeks' time. He confirmed that at the next meeting the Hill House issue would be discussed, The confrontation with Hill House stems from the club's financial problems. The board wants to change the club's name, increase its 1,500 membership, launch their own capital development plan and sell shares in the club to improve amenities and its 22 bedrooms.
