AGM - Thank You and Welcome!27.07.2016
Hi all, thank you to all those who were able to attend our AGM on Sunday the 24th July. It was great to see both members and non-members coming along to say hello. The weather was great, the level of cake was very strong and it was a wonderful day spent with great people.
I would like to say a big thank you to the outgoing committee of 2015-2016, for all their hard work and dedication over the past 11 months. We started with a new committee and faced a lot of challenges along the way but I am proud of what we have achieved together. Thank you to those individuals who stepped up to really take part and get things done for the good of the club.
We have seen a record amount of money raised for charity for our club Easter Event, multiple monthly meets, new and exciting events added to our club calendar, new club website, highest member numbers yet, the return of the club newsletter, strong club bank balance and much more.
All of this is done by people volunteering to give up their spare time and it is only through their efforts that this is all possible. So – Thank You!
Now comes the time where we welcome in the new committee for 2016-2017. At the AGM on Sunday final votes were cast and all tallied up to provide us the end results.
