Dear Members

It is with great sadness that I inform you that I am resigning from the BRFC Committee today.

It is felt by senior members of the Committee that, due to an anomaly in the wording of the Constitution, I should only be doing the job of chairing the monthly Committee meetings rather than the job of Club Chair, which I have been undertaking to the best of my abilities for the past year.

It is also felt by senior Committee members that the job of Club Chair should be temporarily allocated to other members of the current Committee until such times as they can change the constitution back to, once again, allow for a Club Chair who is voted into post by the membership, (a constitutional change in June 2018 was previously agreed by the membership to allow the committee to vote on their own Chair). This will hopefully provide some continuity.

It has been a privilege to serve the members of this amazing club for the past year, and I thank the vast majority of you who have been so unwaveringly supportive.

I wish the Committee and the Club every success in the future.

Kindest regards,
