Kernow AGM appoints officers

Today’s AGM saw Andy Rose, Colin ‘Boot’ Booth and Pete English re-elected as President, Vice-President and Treasurer respectively, but added new names to the Kernow Petanque management committee (MC) in several other roles.

Pete Tombs will take over from Drew Jarvis as Playing Officer – a big thank you to Drew for carrying out the role over a long period – and Sue Hardy comes in as Secretary.

The Membership Secretary post will be filled jointly by Pippa Boardman and Nicky Tombs.

Chris Crane joins the committee as Webmaster and Mark Hypponen picks up the post of Safeguarding Officer.

Tim Austin continues as Youth Development Officer and Andy Rose as Regional Umpire.

There were no nominations or offers for the role of Promotions Officer – any volunteers?

This AGM was held now, late in the year, because of the difficulties caused by the pandemic over the past 18 months or so. To get the meeting back to its former place in the Kernow calendar, the date of the next AGM, which will review 2021, was set as 27 March 2022.

A high priority for the new MC will be to get a 2022 playing calendar out: more news soon.
