    Welcome to the new committee and commiserations to Abi - thank you for standing for the second year and I hope that you can still be involved.

    The committee change over will be on Monday 1st December and I will be in touch by email to the 3 new members by email.

    Look forward to working with you all and many thanks to Cass, Lilian & Heather than have chosen not to stand again this year.

    Cass has already offered to continue to support the GAGB website.

    A reminder that the first committee meeting is planned for next Friday (5th Dec) at 8pm and I hope that the entire team are able to make that date/time.

    Thanks for electing me I will do my very best to do everything I have said I will.

    I hope Abi will still be willing to work with GAGB in the coming year supporting the committee, I know what it feels like to get rejected and not allowed to carry out my ideas. This was my second time of standing.

    I look forward to working with the rest of the committee.

    Thanks to Mike for managing the elections, well done to those elected and thanks to Abi for standing and offering to help. Running GAGB is a time consuming and mostly thankless job so your commitment is really appreciated.

    Good luck to the new committee, and thank you to all those supporting GAGB in other ways
    I am very pleased that Abiherts is willing to offer her support, it is always difficult when there is only 1 candidate too many. I admire your determination and commitment to stand again this year Abi I am so sorry you did not get in, this year.

    Thank you and to all involved in GAGB, who help to support the GAGB in any way, it all makes a difference.

    As Jen mentioned, I have already made arrangements are already in place to host another GAGB CITO for 2015.

    I have enjoyed the last year on the GAGB committee.
    It has been very interesting learning more about GAGB, and how they enhance and play a vital role in Geocaching and support geocachers and land owners in the UK.

    I am delighted that I have been able to support and give information in any way, to Land Owners, cache owners and cachers in helping to make our countryside and geocaching more accessible for cachers with limited / restricted mobility.

    I will continue to support GAGB and am still available and happy for people to continue to contact me in the GAGB forums or various other ways.
    I will continue to strive to support others in making caching more accessible for all.

    All the best
