28.01.2019 InStep AGM

David Perry (chairman) expressed his pleasure at the good turnout, when 20 walkers and 16 walk leaders attended our 16th AGM at the Rufford. He mentioned that in 2018 we increased the names on our database by 23 to 456. We completed 144 walks, with numbers averaging in the 30’s, the highest attendance being 51 (one of the mulled wine and mince pie days). Only 3 walks were cancelled due to bad weather, and this was somewhat remedied by a couple of unofficial walks put on to avoid withdrawal symptoms during holiday periods.

Outings were to Stratford upon Avon, and the Chester Christmas market, and the year completed as usual with a convivial lunch.

We have welcomed 3 new walk leaders: Pat and Michael Tomlinson, and David Hutchins. Pat has also taken over management of the InStep Website. Our funds are in good order thanks to 2 donations and your own generous support of our outings and raffles.

The walks report noted we have 30 regular walks, gaining Annesley and losing Cuckney.

All Executive officers for the year were re-elected, so remain: Dave Perry, Chairman; Sheelagh Holland, Vice Chairman; Lesley Perry, Treasurer; Joanna Scanlon, Secretary.

Please contact Jo’ if you would like to receive a full copy of the minutes of this meeting.

23.01.2017 InStep AGM  

This was held at the Rufford.  Pam was re-elected for her second term of office as Chairman; Dave Perry Vice Chairman; Jo Scanlon Secretary; Lesley Perry Treasurer.  

Thanks were given to the officers stepping down - Alec Seels who had very kindly supported Pam in the position of Vice Chairman for a year, but had no interest in proceeding to the chair; Jaci Sanders who gave us two years as secretary under the most difficult circumstances; and sadly Andy, who had served as our impeccable and steady handed treasurer since the groups inception.  

Anyone requiring a copy of the minutes please contact the secretary through the contact page on the website, and they will be emailed to you when they become available.


26.02.2016 InStep AGM



After 6 happy and successful years Sheelagh stood down as our Chairman and Pam was elected.

Sheelagh was presented with flowers, a theatre ticket, and Kindle Paper White in recognition of her sterling contribution to our continued development.  We wish Pam every success in her new role.

Minutes of the AGM are available from the secretary.
