I became Chairman of the Art Group when Sian retired at the end of March and would like to thank her, on behalf of the Art Group, for the tremendous work she did as Chair.
This involved standing up in front of us at the formal occasions, chairing the art committees, hanging the exhibition, taking water colour classes and buying shortbread. She also undertook an enormous amount of work behind the scenes which went unseen and was extremely valuable. She has left the Art Group in great shape, following the best exhibition ever. We will find an opportunity to thank her in person when the Club opens.
I would also like to thank her for preparing me to become Chairman and for assembling a tremendous team of enthusiastic and knowledgeable people on the art committee. They are all volunteers, Members, giving up their time, contributing to the success of the Art Group within the Club and I am really looking forward to working alongside everyone.
