As the time comes for me to hand on the chairmanship to Mike Foers, I wish to thank Keith Hamilton, Mike Weston, Gerald Frizelle, the committee and members for their support during the year. It has been a busy year with interesting visits and enjoyable summer and Christmas lunches. Thanks to Peter Fells for arranging our theatre visits; we look forward to further visits in the future. It was good to welcome John Wright and David Robinson as new members; we need to continue our efforts to gain new recruits. We are looking forward to the Spring break in Bristol and thank John and Margaret Rolph for initiating the visit. It is pleasing that so many members have joined up for the holiday. It is good that the coffee mornings are well supported. I wish Mike Foers every success during his chairmanship.
