AGM - Friday, 29th October 2021

During our AGM, we said thank you and goodbye to our outgoing Chair, Kevin Walker.
A vote of thanks was written and given by Margaret Edwards, and is included below.
Kevin was also presented with a gift from the committee - a Liz Henderson model of the late, great Carwed Charmer.

Kevin has been a member of Clwyd Association since the late 1980’s. He started as a member of the North Western Association, but he saw the light and soon came over to us in Clwyd. Our gain and their loss.
Kevin’s first term as chair began in 1992, replacing Carl Ridgway as chair and ended in 1995. He was then made chair again in 2012 & of course until the present day, being the longest serving chairman Clwyd has ever had. Quite an achievement, which I am sure you will all agree.
I am sure Kevin has seen a number of changes over the years. I understand we had over 400 members in the early days.
The association has developed over the decades; Kevin was involved with the starting of the journal. I understand, that he used to ‘type set’ all the articles and had it printed where he worked (a saving for the association, which I am sure treasurer Wyn was pleased about!)…
The shows have grown from strength to strength, from being held at Llysfasi, then at Dyserth and finally at Ruthin Farmers Auction.
Kevin was also involved with the setting up of our Clwyd Sale, which speaks for itself (especially after the tremendous sale last Saturday). At this point, I would like to say, well done to Emyr Lloyd and his team for such a well organised and successful sale.
During Kevin’s time on the committee, he has always been supportive, encouraging new members. A diplomatic chairman, letting members share their views. The oracle, we can all refer to when needed. We will miss you Kevin, I am sure you will be on hand with advice and your experience for our new chairman Stephen Johnson.
Can we all show your appreciation for Kevin Walker's hard work over the years.

Margi Edwards, on behalf of the Clwyd Welsh Pony and Cob Association Committee and its members
