The club’s 2019 AGM took place on Thursday 17th January, and plans for the coming year were discussed. Compared to previous years, there’s a bit of change this time around!
There have been some changes on the club’s committee. Martin Aris has stepped down from the chairman position and taking his place is former club secretary Sam Evins. Assuming Sam’s role as secretary will be Matt Smith, a long-serving club member who makes his debut on the committee. We’re delighted to have Matt on board and we’re very grateful for the time and dedication that Martin has put into the club, from its very beginning to the present. It’s fair to say we wouldn’t be where we are now without Martin, cheers fella!
In addition, Richard Coughtrey has taken up the role of vice-chairman to support the committee when required. The remaining roles of treasurer and webmaster remain unchanged, held by Gary Evins and James Clarke respectively. All in all, despite the changes, the club remains as healthy as it ever has been and we’re looking forward to a good 2019.
We have a small selection of shows lined up for the first half of 2019, with more to be announced in due course. At present the list is made up of our annual pilgrimage to the south coast for the Poole Vikings show on 13th April, the Thames Con convention on 28th April and our usual display at the Bloxham Steam Rally on 29th and 30th June. Our pub themed display will be coming with us to all of the shows we do this year, so if you missed it at Scale ModelWorld back in November, or if you just want to see it again, here’s your chance!
A number of smaller matters were covered in the AGM, but they’re far too tedious to be discussed here! Enough of the chat, get back to those modelling benches and get to work the lot of you!
