Di Medhurst hands the cheque to Felicity Stratton

Di Medhurst (Stoke BC) has stepped down as Warwickshire County Ladies President and Chris Ward (Lillington) picks up the reins.

On her departure at the AGM Di presented a cheque for £2,992 to Felicity Stratton and Guide Dog ‘Ivy’ who were pleased to represent the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, which had been her chosen charity for the year.

By raising over £2,500 Di was also able to name a dog and Tammy will be one of the new puppies.

Chris Cooke (Southam) was welcomed as Junior Vice-President to join Joy Cooke (Blossomfield) as Senior Vice-President and the rest of the Executive team.

New president Chris Ward’s charity for the coming year will be Myton at Home, chosen because of the care and kindness a very close friend received during his illness, enabling him to be at home with his wife and family.
