Thanks to all of you who came along to our AGM last night. We’ll straighten out the details in due course, but in the meantime we’ll go with our new committee which will be headed as Chair by Neil Devonport, universally AKA Jogger (ironically of course!) Our thanks go to Debbie Smith, who stepped down as Chair after three years to take on a voluntary role with England Athletics. Neil passes on the baton as men’s captain to Will Meredith. We also welcome John Partridge to the committee as Publicity Officer, a role he has started to take on in recent months, and we thank Glyn Sawford and Kev Ford, who are also stepping down this year.
It’s something of an end of an era, as Glyn has given the committee many years’ service, variously as Grand Prix Director, Membership Secretary and editor of Running Free, as well as providing many words of wisdom from his years of experience. No doubt Glyn will be going off to spend more time with his fell shoes, if that’s possible!
