It was a period of great change for Cambridgeshire Badminton Association, as the summer AGM saw a number of long-standing Committee Members retiring after terrific service to badminton in the County.
Stepping down were Sharon Chandler (Chair), Robin Buttle (Secretary), Sandra Ashcroft (Treasurer), Derek Shaw (Coaching Co-ordinator) and Shirley Dalton (Committee Member).
The group have given an unprecedented number of years to helping organise and run the Association for the benefit of the sport and players in the region. They have been on the Committee for the following periods:
- Sharon Chandler - 25 year (12 match sec, 13 chair)
- Robin Buttle (13 year secretary)
- Sandra Ashcroft (13 years treasurer)
- Shirley Dalton (30+ years)
- Derek Shaw (30+ years)
Their combined service adds up to more than 111+ years!! It is unlikely that such a commitment will ever be seen again in the future.
At the AGM, there were awards of gifts to the various members, and our thanks go out to them all - we are all in their debt.
