Immediate Past President - Andrew Mackereth

Gentlemen

I thoroughly enjoyed my year (almost a year) as President of our great organisation visiting many clubs and receiving a warm and friendly welcome everywhere. A big thank you must go to everybody I met on my travels especially those who home hosted myself and Mildred. The joint Presidents’ charity the RNLI raised in excess of our target of £50,000 thank you to all who contributed so generously to this wonderful charity. Due to the dreadful virus Covid 19 my year was curtailed by 3 weeks and we find ourselves in uncharted territory. It is vital at times like this that we keep in touch with our members, and keep the friendships.

This year in my role as Past President is to act as a mentor to members of Board and Council. Also I have to ensure the Board are sustained with tea and coffee at Board meetings, I have had plenty of time to practice this. I also support Board members with special projects that they are preparing.

Gentlemen keep smiling and stay in touch.

Keep Well

Andrew.
