Hopefully by now you’ll have seen the minutes from the AGM last week if you couldn’t be there, and know that this is my last Chairman’s Chat! After 3 years on the committee and two as Chair, I’m handing over to Dave Clark and I’m sure he’ll carry on the momentum we have now to take the club forward. Thanks to all the outgoing committee and good luck to the new bunch. I’m sure there’s an analogy I can draw between stepping down from the committee and retirement: less work, more play and plenty of time for gardening!
Chester is full of festivals in May and there’s lots to look forward to this summer. I hope you’ll all take the time to think about adding an event or two to the programme over the coming months; we’re only as good a club as you make it.
Finally, my last job is to wish a warm welcome to our EIGHT new members approved this month: Sophie, Laura, Sam, Phil, Mike, Sian, Matt and Helen!
