The Chairman awards the annual Norman Frost Silver Salver in 2016 to Tom Appleton

“This year’s recipient is a real ‘behind the scenes’ man who does an immense amount of largely unseen work. He has been a member for many, many years and has always been willing to help with any range of things including being custodian of the club’s extensive Commonwealth & Foreign cover collection and supporting the Club Secretary as understudy. He is always on hand to assist other committee members whenever necessary and to lend a hand at club meetings. For the past 7 years he has been the Club Treasurer keeping  the books and doing the Year End Accounts – not only for the club as a whole – but also keeping the Trading Section in check and handling their end of year accounts as well. You will all appreciate how critical the Treasurer’s role is in a club of this nature. It is a role not easy to fill and we are so lucky to have Tom Appleton doing such a fine job. Long may he continue! Tom is a very worthy recipient of the Norman Frost Silver platter and I have great pleasure in awarding this to him.”
