Election/Re-election of officers – Dave Legg standing down, Nikki Renton taking his place as an ordinary club member. All other positions remain as is.
Chairman’s discussion – Quoting JFK My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country. Replace country for club and Americans with club members. A request for club members to participate in organising or helping with the running of the club ie Matty doing relay teams, Kelly doing the club social and quiz etc as this makes for a more active, fun club and shares the jobs around rather than a few trying to do everything.
Tina – issue with club vests raised. Committee will look into supply of new vests.
John Mc – can all run leaders ensure stretches are done at the end of runs.
David S – junior sessions and are there plans to expand the club to include juniors.
Thanks to Jon Parkin for the massive effort he has put into cross country for the club.
