2023 News

Following on from our recent AGM, there's plenty of news to keep you updated on going into the 2023 season!

Election of New Officers:

  • President: After three fantastic years, Anna Tait's term as President comes to a close. We are delighted to welcome John Woodhead into the role; please give him a warm welcome as he takes on this post!

We would like to place our enormous thanks on record to all outgoing officers for their time, dedication and commitment to the club and we look forward to working with new officers as the club continues to move forward!

Bethany replaces the outgoing Charlotte Boland, and we thank her for her contributions over a number of years.
