Whitstable Tidings Issue 12 2016

Message from the President

Hi everyone,

Firstly I would like to thank all those members who attended the recent AGM especially those who had the courage & conviction to voice their feelings about the very important issues requiring a vote, to ensure the Club takes the right road for the majority of members.

Secondly, I would like to thank all the board members for their dedication in serving the Club. In particular, I would like to thank John, our new Secretary. In his first year he has dedicated numerous hours in the office, often answering all your questions as they arise, even when he is in the middle of something very important. So guys if it can wait, then just hang on until he looks not too preoccupied. Thirdly, Fran, who is looking to retire as Treasurer in the near future, for her outstanding work over the past years looking after the clubs finances. I am sure you will all join me in saying a heartfelt ‘thank you’.

I would also like to thank Bob for his outstanding loyalty to the club in his year as captain. It is hard work but also very rewarding. I am sure if you ask any past captain they will all say the same, so give it a try!  Particular mention of the fantastic amount raised during your reign for a worthy cause, which I know is dear to you.

Joan and James again well-done. I know Joan it hasn’t been easy in your year with health issues coming at a bad time, but well done. I think you did an outstanding job. I was particularly pleased when you won my Ladies’ Presidents day for the second year running.  James thank you for your dedication in your year as junior Captain, not easy when you have your studies at School.  Thanks also go to your Mum & Dad for the time they also gave in your support.

So here we are in December, such a busy time for us all both on and off the course. Your support for the Christmas Draw and all the forthcoming Social events is of course encouraged and I urge you all to come along and join in particularly on Saturday 17th for the party. Who knows, you could even be leaving with a prize following the result of the raffle….

Well I have to finish my thoughts for the month by taking this opportunity to wish you all ‘Happy Christmas’ on behalf of Sue and myself!
