Alun Probert was given ‘Worst Timer Keeper’ Award for his continued effort to have a delayed arrive at events and meetings, Alun was delighted to accept the award and said, ‘As Chairman I like to arrive and get on with the meeting, as such arriving just after the due start time means we can crack on’.

The most prestigious Club Person of the Year Award was awarded to Emma Lewis, who has only been a member for a short while has thrown herself into the club and has got involved at all corners, making herself well known and dependable.
