At the recent annual meeting of Wallasey Athletic Club, committee officers elected were: president, Mr. Doug Hanna; chairman, Mr. John Edwards; honorary general secretary, Mr. Ramsey Hewson 0151 639 3217); honorary treasurer, Mr. Len Durkin club captain (M), Mr. Bob Brimage; club captain (W) Mrs. Anne Brimage; publicity and liaison, Mr. John D'Arcy (0151 639 4296).
The newly-elected president launched a venture at the annual meeting to raise money for a club minibus.
The president pointed put in his recent letter to all members that the recent increase in regular training attendances had more than emphasised the difficulties being encountered in transporting members to training and competition venues. He asked for donations, large or small, towards a fund which would, hopefully, be sufficiently large within a year to enable us to fulfil our needs.
Please forward any donations to Mr. D. Hanna, .9 St. Elmo Road, Wallasey, or Mr. Len Durkin, 22 Albermarle Road, Wallasey, making any postal orders or cheques payable to Wallasey A.C. Minibus Fund. Every donation, large or small will be officially acknowledged.
