Well what an exciting year I have had being your president. It is certainly something that

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 all, the

list will fill this bulletin so I would just like to say a big thank you to each and everyone

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 feel

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 in

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 WHRA.

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 year.

Best Wishes, Jim
