Well what an exciting year I have had being your president. It is certainly something
I will never forget and I will cherish for as long as I am here.
So many people deserve my thanks for helping me with this role starting with Mr David
Lofthouse on my presidents’ night and ending with Mr David Lofthouse on Jim’s
president night. In between there are so many people that if I had to thank them
list will fill this bulletin so I would just like to say a big thank you to each
associated with the hall.
Even though I am no longer the president I will still be around the hall at most
of the big
events especially the Glee show and the big showgroup event in October, so please
free to come and have a chat.
Best Wishes, Neil
It is a great honour for me to be asked to be your President for the next year.
For those of you who do not know me, just a little introduction. I was born and bred
Manchester (oops!). I came to Leeds in 1967 to do a teaching diploma at the University
and I am still here. I am married to Barbara and we have four children and nine
grandchildren. I taught Chemistry and Science, at Cross Green School and then Sherburn
High School. When I retired I was Deputy Head there. I played rugby union and then
badminton. Now I am content to do some walking and watch Leeds Rhinos.
We moved into the Red Halls in 2000 and it did not take long to get involved with
I am chairman of Thursday Afternoon Club and if you come you are sure of a warm welcome
and a pleasant afternoon. I look forward to meeting many more of you in the coming
Best Wishes, Jim
