INAUGURAL VICE PRESIDENTS LUNCH - 2017

We were delighted to welcome over 40 VP's and their guests to the first lunch, exclusively for VP's, which took place at the club today (28th Jan 2017).

An excellent lunch was provided by Vanilla Bean with efficient service from our events team.

 

Club President Lionel Frewin extolled the virtues of those present, thanked them most sincerely for their support and efforts over the years and assured them that their generosity enabled the club to further develop its professional coaching and community work at all levels.

 

He drew attention to the virtual honours boards, now up on the club's website, which now covers VP's from the latter 1940's up to the present day and expressed his thanks to Dickie Blackman and Stuart Davies for their help in providing information from the club's archives.

 

He referred to two extracts from the programme produced in 1979/80, to celebrate the clubs 50th anniversary of its founding in 1929, which pointed out just how important volunteers were to the club then and which equally applied in 2017.
