Au revoir

It was very disappointing that so few members came to the AGM yesterday to say goodbye to the retiring committee members.

John Baker, the Hon Treasurer; a long standing, valuable, and committed Committee member. John has been a company stalwart, supporting his wife, our current president Elizabeth Baker in her many roles with the company even before he took over as Hon. Treasurer in 2001. He has always undertaken his role conscientiously behind the scenes, (but very publicly when “Front of House”)
I am also very sorry that Richard Morris has stepped down from his present role as Business Manager.

Richard, has also been a company stalwart, firstly supporting his wife Susan in her committee duties and then as a committee member in his own right.

Both John and Richard’s dancing daughters left the company some time ago and went on to vocational training; both being more evidence of the advantage that dancing with us gives.
Rhian Jenkins, who although by comparison had not been with us for long, brought the company into the world of social media; which incidentally I am convinced helped us to win the Grand Award in January.

We all owe them our gratitude for everything that they have done for The Company.

There are three new committee members, Nicola Roberts was elected as Hon. Treasurer, Jessica Wilson was elected as Publicity Officer and Zoe Glenister joins as a committee member. Ann Starling has taken on the mantle of Business Manager – look out for their details on this site soon.
