Former league president Jeff Hutchinson, having handed over the chain office to Mike Potter at the AGM, had the following letter read out at the February management committee meeting:

"Hi Mal - Please convey my thanks to the league for my invitation to the Annual Dinner which I enjoyed immensely.

Please also thank the League for the presentation of the silver plate at the AGM. I was very moved and surprised. 

Thank you also for the very kind words about me at the annual meeting.

As a well known eulogist, it occurred to me later that it was not unlike being in the unique position of hearing the kind words which are said about you at your own funeral! "

Other correspondence at the meeting included a letter from Shifnal BC chair Glenis Embrey to thank the league for the Clubmark presentation with BCGBA president Barry Massey in December 

Ercall Magna’s former sec Margaret Fletcher also wrote to inform the league that the club had been dissolved after 41 years playing in High Ercall. They are withdrawing their Monday night team but want to keep a place in Dennis Lewis Thursday Division as Bowring B . . .
