Hi All, we are pleased to announce that at our AGM in July the following people were elected to group roles:
We would like to take this opportunity to say a special 'thanks' to a couple of people who have stepped down from roles. Firstly to Fran Oborski who has supported the group since it started in 2008 and has attended nearly all of the meetings. For the past 2 years Fran has acted as Treasurer for the group. Whilst she has stepped aside from the Treasurer role she will continue to support the group.
Secondly a very special thanks goes to Spike. What can i say...... I'm sure you will all agree he has done a great job leading the group for the past 2 years. Spike has been an excellent leader and has stepped up and made difficult decisions when needed. Finally i would like to thank Sue Tew for continuing as Membership Secretary (it's going to be a busy year as the group focuses on recruiting new members!). We also want to thank to the group members who have stepped forward to take on roles for the first time. This is an exciting phase for the group as it becomes fully community led. I'm sure under the leadership of John & Carol that Spike, Rob and Sue will all build on what's been achieved so far and move the group to the next level.
We will continue to meet on the first Friday of the month (no meeting in August). The next meeting will be Friday 7th September. The venue will be confirmed nearer the date.
In recognition of his voluntary work with Friends of St. George’s Park, Spike was invited to attend the Worcestershire Diamond Jubilee Reception in the presence of Her Majesty the Queen and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. This was a great honour for both Spike and the group. At this event Spike was photographed talking with HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. This photograph caught the imagination of the local, national and international press. The photograph, along with a description of the friends of St. George’s Park, appeared in the local papers, several national papers and in the Chicago Tribune, Australian Telegraph, The Palm Beach Times a Finnish newspaper and even Hello! magazine.
