AGM - January 2015

This year's AGM carried far more importance to the running club than those of the last few years :  After 7 years in the post John Lovatt stepped down from the role of club chairman and, with the same length of service, Christine Andrew stepped down from her role as club secretary.  As everyone is aware, without named members in these roles the club is not recognised by England Athletics or indeed other running clubs.  BRC would like to thank both John and Christine for all their work during the past seven years -  effectively saving the club from folding when it found itself in a similar position in 2008.   Stepping up to the task at the AGM were two volunteers ......

Kevin Shufflebottom was elected the new chairman and Rachel Hollins was elected club secretary.  BRC would like to thank both of these members for keeping the club a viable entity.  Best wishes to you both in your new roles. A full listing of the 2015 committee will be posted shortly on the contact_us page.

 Here are a couple of pics from the AGM.
