Following the recent retirement of John Cox from the Treasurer's position, Secretary, Fred Crawford, will take on the financial responsibilities until the end of the financial year (31st March).  We are looking forward to recruiting a new treasurer from the membership: a job description is available on request and full support will be given.  Please give this matter serious thought and let Fred have nominations as soon as possible.

At the last meeting of the Executive Committee chairman, Judith Hughes, thanked John for his contribution to the running of the DSC and invited him to remain as a Trustee.  All at the meeting approved this and John indicated that he was honoured to accept.  

The Sports Council endeavours to encourage the people of St Helens, particularly the young, to fulfil and develop their potential which will improve their health, well-being and enhance their quality of life.

Membership currently stands at 39.  Eleven of last year's members haven't renewed and, furthermore, we have records of a further 149 past members.
