47 members packed the LC bar last night to hear upbeat reports from Chair Gerry Ashton and Treasurer Bram Fischer.
Among the highlights of a successful year, Gerry listed our membership strength of over 200 of which a third were juniors; our excellent league and relay performances; our continuing fine reputation for the organisation of our own races; our full and varied social occasions; our management of the C25K beginners courses.
Bram took us through the healthy balance sheet, with the news that we were to spend some of the surplus on an on-site container for our club equipment which will include a good amount of Junior kit to be bought soon with the help of a Community Chest grant.
It was agreed to implement the main Constitutional changes affecting the Junior Section and the anti-bullying clause, but the suggestion to limit the size of the Committee will have further consideration.
All nominated Officers were elected. Job role changes: Berna Cantwell takes over as Welfare Officer; Chris Rees assumes the new role of Beginners Officer; Beckie Comins (aided by Syd Wheeler) will look after Club Kit; Andy Bray becomes Equipment Officer. Vanessa Lawson's appointment as Women's Club Captain and Karen Elvers' as WotsOn Editor and the third member of the Club Champs team were also confirmed.
