The notes to the 'Mini' AGM 2020 can be found here: AGM 2020 Docs

The AGM finished with a presentation by President Mike Calvert of 'Life Member' to Martin Curry, below is the history to this award:

I am delighted to be able to tell you that the Board have approved of the elevation of Martin to the status of Life Member of Wanstead RFC. This is the highest accolade we can bestow upon a member and he now joins an illustrious group of past and present members who have numbered just 18 during our 128 year history.

The criteria for such status are set at an extremely high level and Martin is the very epitome of voluntary service carried out over an extended period.

Martin joined Wanstead as a player in 1980. During the next 40 years, he has fulfilled the roles of President, Club Secretary, Chair of Youth Rugby with special emphasis on our long-standing relationship with Jacou RFC. He has been our groundsman since 2000 and was responsible for our first floodlit training area.

He is a member of the Board and is at the very core of our ground improvement programme with current responsibilities for us being able to access and utilise Wensleydale playing fields.

On behalf of all Herons, I wish to express my gratitude and thanks to Martin for his service to our Club.
