AGM – 18 October 2012
Many thanks to everyone who attended our AGM. It was great to have many representatives from the organisations that we assist in attendance. We made grants of £3189 to support village organisations this year in response to their requests for help (see Oct/Nov issue of Villager). We also purchased 20 trestle tables for use by the Village and, together with the Fairthorne Trust , we provided hampers for the elderly in the village last Christmas.
We record our sincere thanks to Jenny and David Dobbin, who this year lent us their garden for the Fete. Also a big thank you to Jim Sanger, our esteemed auditor for this year and many years past.
There have been a number of changes in the Community Association Committee this year. Our hardworking Chairman Hugh and our very efficient Secretary Sue Booth stood down this year, after many years of inspired guidance and support. Other resignations included Ann Linton, David Fox and Julie Carr – their dedicated hard work over the years is greatly appreciated. We were delighted to welcome Sarah Jackson, Caroline Annets, Helen Baines, John Burdass, Andy Lewis, Graham Adlard and Charlotte and Mike Woods, all re-elected. The Secretary (Laura Evans) and Treasurer (Susannah Magnion) and Chairman (James Davys) were also elected.
Eurovision Evening – Saturday 20 October
I never cease to be amazed by the wealth of talent in the Village and it was certainly on display for this wonderful occasion. Andy Lewis and Helen Baines should be congratulated for their inspired ideas and leadership of this event. The enthusiastic performances were fantastic, from all the “countries” taking part and after a very close competition congratulations go to the L’ecole de Brightwell, led by Wendy Murton, the French entry, who were overall winners. Many thanks to everyone who contributed to making this such an evening to remember.James Davys, Chairman
