Chairman's Chat April 2018
Updated: Jan 21
Welcome to my first Chairman's Chat! I am delighted to have been elected as Chairman of the South East Region, especially as we have a very busy year coming up!
I would like to start by welcoming two new committee members - Jill Glennerster and Libby Eldridge. I look forward to working with them and the rest of the region's officers and committee members.
I would also like to congratulate our two new Honoured Members of the South East Region - Derek and Michael Wilkinson. It was lovely to see Derek at the AGM so that he could be presented with his certificate.
Now, I have decided to break with the recent tradition of a Chairman's Challenge. This doesn't mean, however, that I don't have a challenge for you! Next year, we (the South East Region) are hosting the National Rally at the Beaumont Estate, Old Windsor from Friday April 12th - Sunday April 14th AND I WANT YOU TO BE THERE!
So, my challenge to you is two-fold:-
Get signed up and bring as many of your team as you can. On the Saturday there will be a wide variety of workshops - so why not ring all day, improve your technique, challenge yourself or learn something new. On the Sunday morning we are having a rally session consisting of massed ringing (and team solos if you are feeling brave!) - come and be part of it!Volunteer to help. There are lots of jobs that need doing over the weekend, from stewarding individual workshop sessions, helping out on the information desk, ensuring that equipment is in the right place at the right time - some require a little time, some require a lot. Please let me know if you would like to be added to my list!
I look forward to seeing you at an event soon! Happy Ringing
