Seasons Greetings

I write this as the Branch Annual Meeting has just finished and I look back at my time in the Mid South Group and look forward to moving to pastures new sometime in the New Year - i hope!

The meeting was happy and informal as usual with three guests - Rosemary Attfield who gave a really informative talk on how to achieve the goal that you set yourself, be that a Pleasure ride season or a 160km and CER season. I think we all learnt something - I know I did. Our other two guests were Kerry Dawson, the Groups Director on the EGB Board, and Esther Young, the new Operations Director. It is really good that the Board members are getting out and meeting grass roots members.

I especially wish to say thank you to all the Committee who have helped me so much during my spell as Chairman and to all who contributed to my leaving gift of Garden vouchers. Some of the vouchers will be used to buy a flowering cherry tree for my new garden as I plant one wherever I move to to remember my mum as it was one of her favourite trees.

I have really enjoyed the challenge of helping start a new Group and seeing it blossom into what i believe is a lovely friendly group, one of whose aims is to nurture new starters to the sport we all love.

Best wishes to all of you for a safe and rewarding season.
