Outgoing Presidents Address

Hello everybody,This year I stand down as President and it has been a very quick two years. It has been most enjoyable seeing lots of people I haven't seen for a long time at certain events.

Our new President is Neil Gawthorpe and the Vice President is Jim Broadhurst, I send them my best wishes and I'm sure they will have a good time.The 19th March is when we have our Presidents night so hopefully it'll be

a busy night with many members and non members attending.

My last event was Burns night that was enjoyable held on Friday night, the night that we have

the bar open to all members, hopefully this night will see more people now that Spring is on

its way. I'd like to thank John for piping in the haggis, Malcolm for pre paring the food and

Trevor for doing his weekly quiz and bingo.

I would like to say a big thank you to everyone for their time, effort and help over my time as

President, it has been much appreciated especially Patricia for working the bar, not just on Fridays.

Best Wishes, Val


Incoming Presidents Address

Hello, my name is Neil Gawthorpe. I have lived in Whinmoor since 1975. The WHRA has been part of my life since moving into the area, where my younger brother attended the pre-school as I did a local school. My family has also been involved with many aspects of the hall, with even my own children attending the pre-school. Family is very important to me. I have 2 children and my daughter is a very enthusiastic member of the Showgroup

for the last 4 years. Both my wife and I joined the Showgroup committee and are active in our roles

to support any child, as I feel that the children are the reason any of us are here and on the show

week I can be found helping out backstage with the props.

My main interests away from the hall is Rugby league. I have been a season ticket holder at the

Rhinos now for 25 years. I also love to read a good book with Dean Koontz and Shaun Hutson being

my favourite authors at the moment.

I am looking forward to meeting many of you over the forthcoming year.

Best Wishes, Neil
