A huge thanks to outgoing President Steve Faulkner who has been at the helm since 2013 and been a council member since 1994 with only a couple of years off in the middle. Last year he indicated that he only intended to serve one more year and so at the council meeting following the AGM he handed over the reins to Mel Griffiths. Mel has served on the council since 1999 and was previously President from 2008-2010. New Vice President is Sam Woodford.
