The results are in! I’ll disclose the names of those who have been nominated by other members at the end of this email, and announce the date renewals open. This time during the vote, obviously there was no other people to vote for in order to make a committee. We did, however, require 20% of the membership to vote and we’ve had 22 votes this year. That’s a great result, not as many as last year (but then last year it mattered more!), but we’ve had more than most years at an AGM still!

Chairman: Dave Evans
