Mark Perry

A Message From The Chairperson

On behalf of the Board of Management, I offer a warm welcome to season 2018/19.
I am proud to have been elected Chairman for this our 98th year which comes with
high expectations and a sense of excitement. On a personal note I wish to
acknowledge my predecessor Mark Perry for his twelve years on the board and three
years at the helm; large boots to fill but with a new team and a sense of purpose we
are confident of success. I also acknowledge the efforts of Greg Payne who has also
retired after a decade but welcome Mel De Sair who brings new skills to the board.
wish all members all the best for 2018/19.
