As the SCACR Annual General Meeting couldn’t be held in its usual form in May, the Steering Group worked hard to find an alternative format that would allow as many people as possible to participate. A secure, online voting form was set up, and paper voting slips posted to those people who aren’t on email.
A record 269 votes were cast; 230 were online and 39 were postal votes. We’re delighted that Alan Collings was elected Honorary Life Member of the Association.
Alan has been a very active and supportive member of SCACR since moving to Sussex 18 years ago. His mini-ring, Dewbys Bells, has been made freely available for a range of events, including the South of England Show. He is also known for his Handbell Recovery business, and for generously sharing his expertise and enthusiasm for the restoration of handbells! Read the full citation.
Rob Lane, SCACR Master, is looking forward to being able to present Alan with his certificate!
