Just a note to thank you for the lovely tankard presented to me today at the Annual District Meeting.
And explains the background:
I was asked to be District Treasure just before the 1990 ADM, only to find myself in an election with another person.
I was duly elected and have been Treasurer for 27 years up until last weeks meeting when I felt it was time for someone else to have a go. Luckily a much younger ringer (Nicholas James) volunteered for the job and was elected unopposed. He has some experience of the Accounts as he was the Independent Examiner for my last year.
It was interesting that for 26 years of the 27 Mike Bubb was Guild Treasurer so it was odd to have to send the cheques elsewhere the year.
