THE Tennis Club annual general meeting (AGM) was held on Friday evening with about thirty members in attendance.

Chairman Colin Corbishley gave his report and thanked his committee for their support over the last year. He will be standing as chairman for a further year and Jack Ridl, as vice chairman, will be taking over some of his duties. Gareth Larkan was elected as a new committee member.

The rest of the members are Peter Hardy, Mark Thomas, Sylvia Varty, Corné Nefdt and Tish van Rooyen. Van Rooyen is in charge of tuck and kitchen supplies.

Non committee portfolios are Ingrid Surendorff (treasurer), Joanie Koller (catering), Guy Platt (maintenance), Mike Barrow (gardens), Ian Hill (trophies), Ashley Cotterrell (balls), Clive Edkins (refreshments), and Wendy Edkins.

Thanks must go to Corbishley and his committee for their hard work over the last year.
