Standing down from the board, after an extended service of 5 years, is Mr Simon Fuller, Chairman of the Events Committee. Simon has played a huge role in recent years overseeing and leading the activities and functions for Members, ensuring that the broad scope of our offering caters for the wide interests of our Members. He has been a great supporter and promoter of all the various dinners, trips, tastings, lunches and lectures and although is longer required to work quite so hard, we are sure we will see him popping the champagne at the next event!
Taking Simon’s place as Chairman of the Events Committee is Club Director, Mrs Lindy Tasker – Lindy has a rich background in organizing charity events for Young Bristol a skill set we are sure she will put to good work over the coming months. We wish her all the success in her new post and we look forward to many of the upcoming dates in the Club diary.
