Plus a substantial portion of Cheshire, requires commitment and determination of the highest quality. Glennys Hammond has displayed these qualities par excellence.
Glennys’s appointment coincided with a time of major changes within CTC, which added extra layers of responsibility to normal secretarial duties. Without previous experience of the workings of CTC, Glennys had additionally to understand, advise and apply the new protocols fairly and correctly in order that all members could make their decisions on the way forward within the new framework. Once this new Policy was adopted, Glennys chaired the sub-committee which drafted new Local Regulations, balancing the over-arching requirements of CTC Policy with the needs of local members and groups. All involved were impressed with the meticulous care and attention to detail, leavened by the good-humour, openness and approachability, that Glennys brought to this task.
These were the years when the Chester and North Wales website required improvement in order better to reflect the needs of the membership. Fortunately, Glennys managed to find the time and enthusiasm to take on the editorship, and also to advise the web-designer - with pleasing results. The website is not only technically excellent but is kept up-to-date with photographs of current activities, articles and notices. Glennys may justifiably be proud of her achievements.
In 2010, after three hectic years, Glennys had to relinquish the post of Honorary Secretary because of family commitments. During those years Glennys had maintained the high standards that members of Chester and North Wales CTC have come to expect from their honorary secretaries. Her dedication is impressive and Glennys is held in high regard by all who come into contact with her. Chester and North Wales CTC and, indeed, the Club as a whole owe her a deep debt of gratitude. It is upon ’grassroots’ volunteers like this that the future of CTC depends.
