Tuesday 1st October – News from the AGM

Club Officials

As most are aware there are a couple of changes at the top of the Committee, President Mick Jeffrey after his 3 year term and Treasurer Julian Mawson, 13 years in office, both stepped down.  The committee, all those present and I’m sure those members who couldn’t make the AGM, expressed thanks to both for all of there hard work.

The new & continuing officials are:

President – Matt Podd has taken on the role of club President.

Secretary – John Dade

Membership Secretary – Hannah Mallinson has taken on the new roll of membership secretary.

Treasurer – Ian Broadbent has taken on all the other treasurer duties previously done by Julian.


Road – Liam Dunne & Tamara Weatherhead

Fell – Andrew Robertshaw & Sarah Fuller

Cross Country – Andrew Robertshaw


This year’s subscriptions are now due,  because of last year’s UK Athletics £5 increase per club member the standard subs have been increased to £30,  all other rates ‘Friends’ & 2nd Claim have remained the same.

Club Mark Application

Hugh Pearson got the go ahead for Otley to push for the UK Athletics club accreditation which is needed for the club to move forward particularly regarding funding for the juniors and the Tony Walker’s Chevin Olympic Park, & please ‘like‘ this facebook page via the link.

This needs to be completed within a year of application so Hugh will be looking for help from club members to make sure this happens.

    Ladies – for those who couldn’t make the AGM I stated in my grandiose tear splattered acceptance speech that: when I send out an email saying I would like all interested for a relay team(s), I mean I want at least 3 ladies to step up ASAP! There’s no ‘fast’ in team, girls! It’s just team – and a girlie day out 😉 We need to think national! And we don’t always have to prequalify like them men do, haha!
