Retiring and New Committee Members
At April’s AGM we said thank you to five retiring committee members who have all contributed a huge amount to MMG’s work over the last few years.
Glynis Law actually left the committee a few months ago, but continues to be an active member of the group. Martin Fenn-Smith and Martin Suter retired from their roles as Treasurer and Membership Secretary respectively, and two of our longest serving members, Ann Robinson and Maggie Biss also stood down after years of active support and commitment.
Maggie was with Diana Bevan, a founder member of MMG and has been our secretary since the Group was formed. She has been a key person especially during the early years when she lived at Pilstone House and has loyally supported our Open Days and other events and for many years produced MMG’s newsletter.
Ann Robinson has also been a loyal supporter of the Group. She helped with the production of MMG’s anniversary book and hosted the launch of this book at her lovely meadows near Shirenewton.
In their place we have gained some new members. Cecilia Davies, who has served on the committee for a year now, is our new membership secretary; she stood in for three months as Treasurer, preparing the accounts for the AGM. Rachel Morgan is a new recruit and she takes over as treasurer. Judith Carruthers has also officially joined the team after being a frequent volunteer helper at our events.
Can You Contribute to MMG’s Work?
We are still looking for one or two more volunteers to join the committee to get back to our full numbers. You don’t have to be an expert in any particular field as we need people with many different skills, whether it’s practical help at work parties, administrative help, contributing to event organising, or becoming an ambassador for the group. We would particularly like to do more with young people. If you would like to know more please talk to one of our committee members.
