Ormskirk Market Day


 At a Committee Meeting held last night, 14.3.2018, our Chairman, Bill Huyton, informed us that he will be resigning as Chair at our Annual General Meeting which is on the 23rd May 2018.  Bill feels that he has to scale back his activities due to health reasons.  As a Committee, we were very sorry to hear this, but Bill will remain a member of the Society and of the Committee.  We have to thank him for all of the hard work he has put in on the Society's behalf over the years but can understand his reasons and hope that he will remain with us for many more years.

Sadly our Librarian, Jean Gidman, has also decided that it is time to take a back seat.  Jean has done a brilliant job with our Library over the past 19 years but would like more time to do other things.  She will continue in the post until the AGM when Kathryn MacDonald will take over from her.  Kathryn has been working with Jean for the last couple of months and will continue to do so until May when she will become the Librarian and Jean willbe her assistant. when necessary.  So it should be a seamless transmission.  We are pleased to tell you that Jean will remain a member of the Society and on the Committee.

In view of the above, nominations are invited for the Chair's position.  Anyone wishing to put themselves forward need to be nominated by a member of the Society and seconded by another member.  A vote will be taken at the AGM to elect a new Chair.
