During most of its early history the organization had a rather informal structure and documents tracing organizational matters are rare, dispersed or lost. Only recently did it get a written constitution, since it was obliged to have one under English law as a registered charity.

(From a culinary point of view this is by far the best organization I have been involved in.) However, notes on napkins are easily lost or difficult to read and interpret.
