Your Committee is delighted to welcome two newly co-opted members, Nicky Henderson and Jill Hunter.

Nicky has volunteered to take on the duties of Membership Secretary, as Patsy Rose is retiring after four years of meeting and greeting and keeping the records so efficiently. From now on it will be Nicky's friendly face that is the first to greet you at Alma Hall, with members of the committee taking turns to join her at the entrance and introduce visitors to other friendly faces who will 'befriend' newcomers and make sure of a warm welcome.

Jill will be succeeding Sue Glennie-Smith as Programme Secretary, and the two have already had some very productive handover meetings. Jill's enthusiasm and efficiency promise a continuation of the great WI evenings that we've grown used to under Sue's tenure, and the programme for the first half of the year will be unveiled just as soon as final confirmation is received from all the speakers.

If you would like to join the team, new committee members are always welcome and as a new recruit you needn't fear you will be under pressure to become an officer! With the AGM coming up this is a good time to come forward, so please speak to any of the current committee members if you'd like to know more. (Just to tempt you, we meet once a month in the early evening with wine and nibbles ...)
