At the ODBBA AGM this afternoon, we were delighted to appoint Ken Membury to be President of the Association. The previous incumbent, Barbara Sudworth, had decided to stand down due to ill health and time considerations. ODBBA would like to thank Barbara for her support over the years, and wish her well for the future. ODBBA is delighted to welcome Ken into his new role, and feel this appointment is very well deserved - Ken has had a lifelong connection with the Association (his father played in the first ODBBA contest in 1923), and he has been on the committee in various roles for some 40 years. Many people will also know Ken from his work with the London and Southern Counties Regional committee. We look forward to working with him for many years to come.
