∗ At our AGM in March there were a few changes to the committee. We would like to thank all those who retired from the committee for all they have done for the club in recent years. Duncan Gillies has been a very active committee member for several years, Sayrah Payne has been Retriever Secretary and General Secretary and Stan Payne, although not on the committee, stepped into the role of Acting Retriever Secretary last year when the position became vacant. A very sincere thanks to all of you for all you have done for the club. Alan Pett has retired as Vice Chairman but has opted to stay on the committee.

Stepping into new roles are Fiona Forbes as Secretary/Treasurer and Fraser Forbes who joined the committee last year has taken on the role of Retriever Secretary. We welcome them both and will do our utmost to support them. Lorna Gray has taken on the role of Vice Chair and is still the Spaniel Secretary. Full details here.
