Our new President and two new Life Members were elected at the AGM, held in the clubhouse on Friday 17th. David Hollingworth stepped down after two very active years in which he combined the Club Secretary's job with the President's role, and he handed over the chain of office (consisting of many venerable club medals) to the newly elected Jan Holst
65 year old Jan took her daughter down to Essex Ladies many moons ago, and then took up coaching and team management, which she has continued to do every since. She has specialised in coaching long jump and pole vault and helped to produce some very fine athletes. Her team management duties often took her into Europe as Essex Ladies represented Great Britain on several occasions. In proposing her, ex-President Jean Burgess said that Jan would "bring a quiet dignity to the role".
