Secretary's Comments 2020


In lieu of the fact that we will not be able to hold our usual AGM this year, I will send reports from Treasurer Howard Brindle, Captains and Fixtures Organiser Peter Duckworth, Competitions Secretary John Walmsley, Vets Representative on Council Andy Townsend, and this one from myseld as Secretary.

You may think we have given way to a little self indulgence in thanking each other; but at the same time please remember that the Vets are the most active section of the Club, with competitions, winter and summer Leagues, Scrambles, away days, and 24 fixtures against other Clubs (already scheduled for 2021) to promote and organise. Committee co-operation and reliance on each other is essential for the smooth running of the section.

Howard, Peter,John W and Andy will all remain on the Vets Committee, which brings me to the Secretary's position. Having held this position for quite a number of years (to say the least!) I think it's time for some new blood as a replacement. By the time next season is really underway, I'll be 85 which, I think, gives a good opportunity for some dynamic, full of ideas, very regular performer, to take over.

Of course, should no-one show any interest then it's not a problem to continue for a further year.

Anyone keen to take up the position should let me have your name, a proposer and seconder. If more that one person is interested, there will have to be a vote which can be done via the internet.

It's more than unfortunate that last season was totally disrupted. Hopefully, and we can only say hopefully just yet, 2021 will prove more normal.

With Best Regards
