A message from Chairman, Keith Beaman
I feel privileged and honoured to be taking the Chair for the second time.
We have had another splendid year with David in the Chair and I know he will continue to give his support with usual enthusiasm.
I must thank Andrew, Steve and Ian who have been and continue to be the backbone of the Club
and I am glad that they have agreed to carry on in their roles. (Since posting this message we are sad to announce the passing of Ian in early Summer. He will be greatly missed.)
Congratulations also to Malcolm for agreeing to take Vice Chair, again for the second time.
This leads me in to an appeal to the newer members to put themselves forward for office. You will find it rewarding and there will always be help at hand. Don’t consider yourself out of the running because you are not resident. Other Chairmen have been like me and only spend part of the year here.
We had a wonderful Charter anniversary celebration on 11th May, attended by newly elected National President Dave Campbell. I believe that this visit was Dave’s first official event.
We will continue our usual format of meeting on the second Thursday of the month excepting July, August and December and holding suitable socials on the fourth Thursday. ( Any ideas please ).
Let’s all have a great year.
