On 21st April at Cotswold Mini Hereford we held our handover dinner where I took over the mantle of Hereford Round Table Chairman from our previous Chairman Andy Banks. May I take this opportunity to thank Andy for all his hard work and for an entertaining year! Over the past 41 years Hereford Round Table has supported thousands of local charities and good causes to the tune of well over £1 million.
I regard it as a privilege and honour to be head of Hereford Round Table it truly is a fantastic and progressive national and international society. With any position there comes responsibility and as I write this brief prologue for the year ahead I am only too aware that our annual charity summer ball is only months away. It is a stressful time selling tickets for an event for hundreds of people, providing entertainment and auction items however it will all be worth it on the night!
Aside from the ball our other major fund raising event is the 41st Annual Herefordshire Fireworks. Our fantastic fireworks display on 4th November which is to be held at the race course in Hereford, this year promises to be bigger than ever before.
Although Round Table engages in charitable and philanthropic activities it is also about a group of friends who meet regularly and have a great time. We meet every other Monday where we could be doing literally anything. The events are limited only by imagination, budget and numbers! If you are between 18 and 45 and want to join please get in touch.
Jamie Crawford, Chairman
