This years AGM saw a few changes.  Most notably, Derek Oakley - our president since 1997 is stepping down since he's finding it harder to get about like he used to.   In gratitude for his superb leadership over the years he is being made "President Emeritus" which, as I understand it,  means he keeps the title but doesn't have to actually do anything if he doesn't want to!

Alan Hoad now takes over as President and also takes over from Laurie (who has reached his 3 year limit) as Chairman.  Laurie now steps into Alan's old shoes to become vice-chairman.

The other change is that Andrew Thompson now becomes out Hon Secretary, and we wish him well as he begins his first role on the exec.

So all in all the 2019 AGM was a quick affair with no propositions to discuss and no voting since all positions were filled uncontested.
