2019 AGM Awards Night and Club Social Evening

A fantastic year for the club was celebrated at our well-attended AGM and Awards Night at The Bell Hotel Winslow on 3rd October.

AGM

The full AGM reports are available via our website. Key points were:

  • The club has grown to 105 members in 2019 and is now one of the strongest clubs in Area 7. Our teams have done very well in area qualifiers and at the BRC national championships. The strong team spirit is the envy of other clubs and our members are increasingly helping out at our events, making it a truly friendly and supportive club.

  • New committee members: Rowan Indge, Poppy Read, Philippa Mitchell, Lizzie Dodd, Emelya King and Lauren Fox have recently joined the committee.

  • After many years service to the club, Lynn Morgan has stepped down as chairman. The club thanked her for her hard work.

  • Sarah Godfrey was elected as the new chair. Lauren Fox is the secretary and Mandy Hewett continues as treasurer. Lauren Hewett, who has helped at almost all our competitions, also remains on the committee.

  • Other committee members stepping down are: Jane Emery, Gill Benwell and Marianne Rabanal, who were thanked for their contributions
