I am pleased to announce that Ian Bell of Rutland has been elected to the General Committee. Ian had a practical farming career before becoming CEO of the Addington Fund. He was awarded an OBE in 2009 for services to farming families and will be a great addition to the Committee. Also re-elected were Reverend Gerald Osborne of Wiltshire and Matt Dempsey of Co Kildare. These elections and other changes have precipitated a couple of small changes to the constitution of the Sub Committees as follows: following his appointment as the Club Vice Chairman, the previous House Sub Committee chairman, Nick Helme, is succeeded by Lindsay Hargreaves, whose place on the Communication Sub Committee is taken by newly elected member, Ian Bell OBE.
