Henley RFC AGM

Henley Rugby Club held it's AGM yesterday evening in which the management committee presented a review of the past year. The presentation will be circulated to all members in due course, but everyone associated with the Club would like to thank those who were able to attend.

It was a poignant evening as the Club also said farewell to Chairman, Mike Trethewey, who has been in the post for 4 years. A great servant to the Club, Mike will be fondly remembered for his fundraising abilities. He has also overseen the building of the new Clubhouse and has been instrumental in helping to raise the money for Phase 2 of the Dry Leas redevelopment, building the new changing facilities which are due to start next week.

Chris Nixon, previously Facilities Director, was unanimously voted in as the new Chairman and we all wish him the best in his new position.

There were also a couple of awards presented last night, firstly Mike Trethewey was presented with the Hedley Roberts Cup, an award for his tireless services to the Club. The second award of the evening, Clubman of the year, was presented to Chris Parrott, Team Manager of the Vikings, for his dedication and hard work in developing a side that won 17 of 18 matches on their way to being crowned BBO League 2 Champions. Congratulations to both Mike and Chris for everything you've done!
