Welcome to our New Year Meet at Storthes Hall, Huddersfield.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry
Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year. This will be my last
Christmas as Chair so I hope we all have an enjoyable few days here at
This meet is our last for 2013 and gives us time to reflect on all that has
happened this year. Thank you to everyone for all your hard work and
commitment and for making this another special year. Apart from our
own special meets and events we hosted a very successful Region
Meet. It was a difficult challenge and thanks to a dedicated team of
helpers, we managed to pull it off and keep the flag flying for
Huddersfield. As a thank you for all of our hard work, Yorkshire Region
have given us a cheque for £500 which will be spent accordingly within
Thank you for all of your good wishes, cards, chocolates and flowers
following my recent operation. I am well on the road to recovery now
and am looking forward to Harold and Jayne’s New Year disco.
On a more serious note, after this meet is over, the time will just fly by.
I am pleased to report that Lynda Baldwin has shown some interest in
returning to the committee and taking over once again as Secretary
from Julie. There are still lots of positions to fill ; PRO, Assistant Rep to
Region, Assistant Sites Officer, Catering Officer and Events Co-
Ordinator. I know many of you are more than able to fill these
positions and I would urge you to give it a go.
Happy New Year to all of you,
