A very well attended AGM concluded promptly, to be followed by a most convivial pre Christmas lunch. Our new President, Ivan Dodd, joyfully and humbly received his chain of office from our outgoing President Gordon Higginson. Gordon, who is also our secretary, focussed on secretarial duties with Seán Bannister in the chair. After many years sterling service, and wishing to stand down more recently, John Pocock handed over the Treasurers responsibility to Alan Steinle. Other appointments remained as previously. The full committee can be viewed on the Officers tab.
