No elections this year.

There will be no need to hold elections for the Association officers this year as each role only had one nominee which were as follows:

Chair - Sue (plot 41) nominated by Phil (plots 24 & 49) & Jan (plots 10, 11 & 12)
Secretary - Clare (plot 35) nominated by Martyn (plots 28, 29, 30 & 42) and Pat (plot 39b)
Treasurer - Martyn (plots 28, 29, 30 & 42) nominated by Phil (plots 24 & 49) and Jan (plots 10, 11 & 12)

Ex- Officio member Jan (plots 10, 11 & 12 & site secetary )
Alastair (plot 56)
Pat (plot 39b)
Paul (plots 57 & 58)

No-one else came forward for the committee and so these positions were also unopposed.

Phil (plots 24 & 49) resigned as secretary as he felt unable to give the role the time that he felt it deserved. Thanks to him for his support over the last year.
Thanks also to the rest of last year's committee for their support.

I'd also like to thank Jan for his tireless efforts as site secretary - this is often a thankless role where much is done out of sight of the rest of us to ensure the smooth running of the site. It is also one where the saying, "You can't please everyone runs true".
Sorry - this has ended up as an Oscars' speech but people do deserve to be thanked - and I haven't mentioned my dog so it isn't that bad!

Although the above form - if you like - the formal committee, I would welcome any volunteers who wish to play a role in the work of the committee as a co-opted member. As far as I am concerned - the more the merrier!
The above committee will be in position as from 1st April 2008.

At the moment Alastair is exploring options for a venue for the AGM (we feel that March is not a good time of year to hold an outdoor meeting!). The AGM will be held during the last week in March. When we have a venue the exact date will be set. It would be helpful if you could let me know of any dates which are difficult as it would be good to see as many as possible there.

We have achieved more than many people expected this year so let's surprise everyone again next year.
