Life won’t be quite the same for the ECCTG from now on – our President, Bryan, has written to the committee tendering his resignation as he feels he is no longer able to play as active a role as he would wish – and although his presence will be sorely missed, he most assuredly deserves a decent retirement after all he has done for the Club over many years. He has been a Club official for over 40 years and a constant support at all our events – it will be very strange without him, but we will make sure we keep in close touch and we wish him a long and enjoyable and peaceful retirement.
The ECCTG committee thank Bryan most sincerely for his time, expertise, support, hard work and friendship. We are sure there are many members who know Bryan personally or know of his work and contribution to British Riding Clubs (ours and Area 20) who would wish to send a personal message – if you don’t have his address from previous programmes, do write, e-mail or phone Libby and she will pass it on with pleasure.
Here is an extract from Bryan’s letter:
You all know that I have a great affection for the Club and hope that I shall be able to keep in touch with it and quite a few members. I was first on the Committee in 1973 – was Treasurer from 1976 – 1983, Chairman from 1983 – 2001, and President from 2001 – 2013 so I do think I deserve a rest. All best wishes for the future. Bryan
