From the President


In this note to the Bulletin as the new President, I would firstly like to thank my predecessor, Don Williams, for his commitment and hard work over the three-year period he was in office. Not only was Don in attendance at events both at St. Bees and throughout the country, but he was also to be seen promoting initiatives with the Virtual Careers Forum and the presidential sporting occasions. The Society has been enriched by his work.

Since Old St. Beghians’ Day in September, it has been my pleasure to attend three social occasions, namely the Yorkshire lunch, the Scottish dinner and the North East dinner. On behalf of the Society thanks go to Steve Crossley-Smith, David Parker and Bill Dove for their work in making these events possible.

The venues are all different in character but the one common denominator is the enthusiasm for the events by those attending. In Newcastle it was particularly heartening to have such a large contingent of younger members.

Finally, do keep sending your news to the Editor of the Bulletin, and with best wishes for 2012.

Anthony Wills, President St. Beghian Society
