During the past two years the size of our committee dwindled, largely due to personal reasons, ill-health and also having served for a considerable number of years several members of the committee felt it was time to hang up the ‘agendas and minutes.’ It hasn’t been easy steering through these more turbulent times, particularly with many external issues having to be addressed with a contracting number of committee members. However, I am delighted to report that during the past few months, we have seen an upward swing in our committee members. I would like to welcome John Milton, Chris Watkins and Alison Mountford who have been ‘persuaded’ to join Parkstone Bay Committee. It won’t be long before we will have to seek larger premises, rather than the front rooms of committee members. That doesn’t mean we wish to put a halt on interest in joining our committee. We openly welcome interest in joining this ‘happy band.’ Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any committee members if you feel the slightest urge to contribute to our beautiful areas of residence. The contact details for each committee member can be found at the end of this newsletter. Thank you
