VVRC AGM and Prize Giving

Our AGM and prize giving was held at The Bradford Arms in Llanymynech in February this year.
It was lovely to see so many of our members there supporting our club and we have many ideas and suggestions for this summer’s programme.
We also welcomed onto the committee Izzy Roberts as club secretary, Alison Ollier as Treasurer and Jane Yorke, who will be assisting with style and performance.
Karen Lawley and Babs Williams have become official helpers and will be running the showjumping from now on.
Heather Jones, Julie Phillips and Cassie Woods, who were standing down from committee, were thanked for their hard work and contributions to the club. The annual prize giving followed the AGM.

Annual AGM and Prize Gving

The evening started with members raising their glasses to members of committee and official helpers who have done a huge amount of work with organising clinics and competitions and training for our members.

Special rosettes were awarded to members who have been extremely helpful during the year and have helped over and above their role in Riding Club., they all have given up so much of their time to run activities for others to enjoy and we really appreciate what they do.

Jessica Jones who has helped at every one of Cassie’s show jumping competitions throughout the summer. Jess is not a member but her mother Heather is. Cassie Woods who organised six very successful show jumping competitions at Radford’s and ended the season with a hugely popular open team show jumping competition. Patsy Pyke who always offers to help whenever and wherever there is a need as well as running lots of clinics and training sessions. Julie Phillips who does not take part in Riding Club activities these days but always offers her help with scoring at our Summer League Dressage competitions. Sally Evans who also offers her help whenever and wherever needed. Justine James for organising another fantastic camp ably assisted by Sally and Emily.
