A number of roles changed at Tuesday's (19th November) Annual General Meeting.

Ian Holmes stood down as long standing chairman of ten years. Members heartily commended him for all his hard work at the river, the pool, for his FSRT training courses and his tireless work in the background. Furthermore he was thanked by the Scouts for supporting them and awarded the Medal of Merit.

Comments, corrections and suggestions relating to the website gratefully accepted by Mark (07879426788).
