Hopefully you all enjoyed the season of hockey just passed, I know I did, promotion hangovers are the best! We have achieved some wonderful things this year and of course some bits we will look to improve.
Ive been the chair for four amazing seasons now and I have decided that now is the right time to pass that privilege onto another for next season, I’ll still be the boss until our AGM in the summer.
Our club is set up as a legal entity and the five directors of the club appoints the committee so going into the AGM this year, the directors have asked Claire Brockbank to take the club forwards post the AGM. Anyone that knows Claire knows how much she will put into this role and I’m thrilled that my successor knows the club inside out. Its also a mark of how far she has brought the junior section that they really are an equal part of the club and its great for that section to have a chair to carry on that momentum in building for the future.
I will put myself up for re-election at the AGM as a director of the club, just step away from the day to day running, I will offer Claire any amount of support and advice she wants.
I’d also like to point you to our new code of conduct, which can be found in our policies section and talks about the behaviour expected of everyone associated with our club. More on that as we go into next season.
Lastly it will be great to see as many of you as possible at the end of season dinner on Friday 13th May. Info from your social reps!
