After a two year gap (for obvious reasons) the club held its AGM on Sunday 1st August via Zoom (a club first). A good turnout was able to learn how the club has dealt with a difficult 18 months and how the club remains in a strong position as we come out of the pandemic.
The meeting was also a chance to pay tribute to outgoing Club Chair Vera Kenyon. Newly elected Chair Andy Hopper said, “On behalf of the club I’d like to thank Vera for all her hard work as the Club’s chair for the last 3 years. Vera took over at a very difficult time and helped put the club back on track. She’s had to deal with a lot behind the scenes which will have gone unnoticed by most of the club’s members but we are all in Vera’s debt for everything she has done for the club. Thanks very much Vera”.
Thanks also went to Fab Goalen and Ilaria Bigotto who stepped down from their Exec roles, all their efforts were much appreciated.
The meeting saw the re-election of a number of club officers as well as new appointments. Congratulations to Marcel Sivak (Club Secretary) and Corina Glowrey (Communications Officer) on their new Exec Committee roles, we’re sure they’ll do a great job.
