The Chairman read the following at our AGM in May 2016:
“John has put in a lot of hard work into the club over the years. He joined the club in its early years and was an enthusiastic member becoming the Club Secretary in 1998 to 2001 and Chairman from 2003 to 2005. John helps out sorting and cataloguing stamps for the Trading Secretary (particularly KGVI varieties) and acts as assistant auctioneer. John was also appointed as Hon. Examiner in 2013, making sure the accounts are in order. He is always willing to help in any capacity that he can despite his involvement in numerous other activities, and continues to be an enthusiastic, valuable and worthy member of the club.”
The Chairman then asked the members to accept that John Dicker should now become an Honorary Life Member. The members carried the suggestion unanimously.
