British Community Council AGM

(Date posted: 2012-12-06 | Organizer: | Category: British Community Council)

Summary of the Annual General Meeting of the British Community Council, held on Tuesday November 27th.

At the recent AGM of the BCC, Greg Leadbeater stepped down as Chairman after 10 years of service to the BCC. Greg was Chairman of the Lisbon Casuals Sports Club, when he took on the role of Hon Treasurer of the BCC, then subsequently acting Chairman under Andy Bull, before taking on the role of Chairman for the past few years. His major contribution has been the initiation and stewardship of the annual and very successful Fun and Games day in June, which has become the major fund raising event of the BCC calendar.

Vice Chairman David Smith thanked Greg for all his work for the community through the BCC. David also thanked David Jackson for his 5 years of loyal work as Secretary to the BCC.

Heather Shiell has been elected the new Chairman and the new Secretary is Ruth Scott Lindley. Both are well known members of the British Community, most recently as committee members of the WRVS.

David Smith will continue his good work of Vice Chairman and the Treasurer's post continues in the able hands of Rob Levitt.
