Tuesday 20th October 2020 saw our first virtual Annual General Meeting and handover of officers, delayed from April due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Outgoing President Katie received a gift from members to thank her for 18 months of leadership, some of which have been through the strangest, most concerning and darkest of days for much in the world population.
We now have a shared Presidency for a further 18 months. Maudie and Gill’s theme is ‘Sustain Together’. Their focus is on self care. Looking after ourselves will allow us to play a stronger part in our Club, in our community and in our environment. Read our Presidents’ Message
We were enthused by some inspiring statements which have set us up for the Presidents’ terms of office:
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can ever change the world; indeed it is the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead
“Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” Helen Keller
“We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back.” Malala Yousafzai
“Buy less, choose well, make it last.” Vivienne Westwood
“Don’t waste.” Sir David Attenborough
“The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.” Robert Swan
Each member of the club had received a gift from the incoming Presidents; a selection of natural health and beauty products, produced in Gill’s kitchen. They represent the starting point of caring for ourselves in order to care for others around us. We’re all looking forward to this time where we support ourselves, eachother, those around us and everything around us.
