|John and Andy|
Outgoing President John Cheetham and Secretary (at the time) Andy Palmer are in tonight’s Evening Telegraph on page 21.
Andy is pictured handing a specially engraved tankard to John to mark his term as President and thank him for all his work on behalf of the area’s deaf children. John served for over 25 years as President allowing PDDCS to benefit from his vast experience and contacts in the charities sector both locally and nationally. More recently, John has been instrumental in bringing Music and the Deaf to the city. John will remain on the committee.
In other news, Andy Palmer has stepped down as Secretary after his latest two-year stint but will also remain on committee to focus on PDDCS News, Hi-Five Bulletin and some special events. Andy is replaced by returning former secretary Jill Medlock. Leaving the committee are Debbie Powell, Anna Baker, Tony Brigeman and Linda Angus who PDDCS would like to thank for their efforts.
Outstanding Chairperson, Nicola Epathite, remains at the helm with Dean Monaf as Vice Chair. The rest of the committee remains the same with Adrian Fisher and Debbie Reilly joining the fold. Many thanks to all the committee, past and present, for their support in this successful year.
