Southern District Annual General Meeting 2016

The AGM was held on Monday 18th April and included elections of the new officers. Anji Reeves handed her chain of office to new Chairman John Chester, of Funeral Partners

John will be ably assisted by Vice-Chairman Ben Walkling of Rowland Brothers and Barbara Ward will continue as Treasurer.

Unfortunately, although Mark Honeyman had had to relinquish the Secretary’s role following a relocation, no successor had been identified; however, subsequent to the meeting, Tony Pearson has agreed to undertake the duties of this vital position.

Offering her best wishes to John, Ben and Barbara, Anji warmly thanked all members for their encouragement and support throughout the year. Although stepping down, she intended to continue as an active member of the group and offered her experience and assistance to the new officers.

Jeremy Field, on behalf of LAFD President James Gallagher, echoed Anji’s congratulations to the new officers and was delighted to note the District’s active, flourishing membership.

The meeting was followed by an entertaining talk from Howard Hodgson, of Memoria, which was very well received and prompted lively discussion during the ensuing dinner.
