If you missed Graham’s blog entry back in June you might not be aware that our very own Life Member Tony Redford has been added to the L&CPU’s Roll of Honour! The link below will take you directly to the announcement on their website.
He has been added to this prestigious list in recognition of his 30 years service not only to our club but to the wider L&CPU club circuit with his many lectures.
He was elected to the Roll of Honour at the L&CPU’s exhibition in Manchester Cathedral by the current President Ed Roper.
Always in the thick of the action he was a major organiser of not only our 50th and 60th anniversary celebrations but also a founder organiser of our two inter-club competitions held in the Exhibition week called the North Cheshire Challenges.
In an extract from the archives you can see how much Tony did to get the first ever inter-club competition off the ground back in late 1980!
He is still closely involved and has played a big part in them becoming rightly hailed as major events in the Competition year, attracting entries from far afield, and setting the standard for professionalism to which many other clubs aspire.
This is my second year on the committee and I have been impressed by his enthusiasm and enjoyment of club life, every aspect tinged with his characteristic humour.
So I would like to take this opportunity to salute the valuable contribution that Tony has made to the club and hope he can hold on for the next 30!
Well done Tony you deserve the accolade.
