19 members attended the 49th AGM. The committee thank Gerald for taking the minutes. The accounts and all other matters were duly proposed, seconded and unanimously approved.
Our 2021-22 programme covers a 7-month period and mainly comprises tasting evenings, plus a Christmas party and an outside speaker in March, who will be giving a talk on Cranbrook windmill. It will not be possible to run wine and beer
competitions during this session due to coronavirus restrictions.
Geoff’s 3½ year chairmanship has finally come to an end and Chris Powis will be leading us at the helm. Many thanks to Geoff
for his efficient running of the club throughout normal and abnormal times. Geoff will certainly go down in club annals as being the longest serving chairman. Chris has kindly volunteered to remain as treasurer, with Philip Bisson providing his expertise as
assistant treasurer. We are also very pleased to welcome Les Bates back onto the committee. The 2021-22 Committee comprises:
Chairman & Treasurer: Chris Powis; Secretary: Cathy Rishman; Assistant Treasurer:
Philip Bisson; Committee Members: Les Maskrey, Geoff Rishman and Les Bates.
The meeting coincided with Tom’s birthday. Many thanks to Tom for bringing along the wine, which we enjoyed after
