This is probably a surprise, it will most likely make some happy, others not so happy.
This is my 11th year in this prestigious position in the club. It is to be my last. I will not be standing for election to the role of secretary at the next AGM, the predominate reason is an increase in the time and effort I need to dedicate to family matters. I am telling you now so that a younger member of the club can think about taking on the task and to give them time to investigate and learn about what is involved. I will be happy to provide support after I hand over the gauntlet and will be happy to continue to serve the club in other ways.
