In addition, the following positions are also being vacated but with potential replacements already identified:
Eric Smith is standing down after three years in the role, during which he has provided sound financial advice and diligence through what has been a challenging period for our club.
Peter Hornby has agreed to take up the position with effect from 1 October 2019 (i.e. the start of the new financial year), Peter has been a member for 3 years, is a Chartered Management Accountant by profession and is working closely with Eric and Council to make sure that we have a smooth handover into the new financial year.
Graham Newberry, who has held this position for various periods since 2005 and most recently since 2015, has also found it necessary to stand aside, with Rob Jennings taking on the role with immediate effect. Graham will be supporting Rob through the transition period.
We are sure that you will all join Council in thanking Eric and Graham for the considerable time, effort and expertise that they have put into these crucial roles.
