The Board wishes to apologise for the delay in announcing the result of the Ballot to elect Directors but can now confirm the votes cast were as follows:- Meriel Harris 915 *Peter Jewell 725 Richard Coles 581.

*Due to an irregularity in this candidate’s nomination being brought to our attention, the Board considered that it had no alternative but to declare null and void all votes cast for the candidate.

Accordingly, Meriel Harris and Richard Coles are declared elected.

In congratulating Meriel Harris on her re-election and welcoming Richard Coles to the Board, we should like to place on record our thanks to Peter Jewell for his work on behalf of the Club over many years.
