My year rushes on apace, surely I can’t yet be thinking about the Christmas competitions! I would like to thank my committee and many others in the ladies’ section who have given me so much help and encouragement over the last eight months, particularly Tracey, who has been a significantly calming influence on more than one occasion. It is also a joy to work with Chris Lightfoot, who tolerates my volatility with such good nature!
