At the Society’s AGM held on Saturday 18th January 2014, at St Martha’s Hall, Little Common, the members said farewell to Nicholas ‘Nick’ Hollingsworth who stepped down as President after nearly 30 years service.
It was a remarkable turnout for an AGM with a full capacity of members attending, some of whom were left standing. Nick Hollingswoprth informed the membersthat he became involved with the Society by accident. It was during the time he was a Director of Hollingsworth (car sales and repairs).He was approached by The Society asking if he would subscribe to the Society’s magazine, when he agreed he was then asked to attend a meeting.
When he arrived he was invited to Chair the meeting, as there was no one present willing to do this. From then on, as they say the rest is history, with Nick helping out with the use of his garden and at shows and meetings, and all that is entailed with the organisation of the Society.
