A Message from the South East Chair



I am so sorry we had to pull the plug on this year’s AGM but the current Coronavirus situation across Britain made it impossible to hold the event. It’s such a shame as it is always a good day conducted in a great atmosphere and I personally look forward to the chance of seeing so many of you at events like these.

The HASSRA SE Constitution requires us to hold an annual AGM and so in absence of the real thing I have composed a “virtual” paper AGM and you will find this if you click here. Fortunately, we had no elections to decide, no Motions to National Conference nor any amendments to our Constitution at this time so it was a relatively straigh­­tforward thing to do. You will also find a Brief if you click here which covers an update on HASSRA LIVE which Ray Allen would have delivered. I had also intended launching a new Commu­­nica­­tions Initiative at the AGM which resulted from discussions had at our Training Day in November and I will bring you all up to date with this in the near future. If you have any questions/­­queries about the AGM business, then please let me know.

Also, you can find the Awards Booklet - click here - and I am delighted to report that this year we had the best response ever. Eighteen Clubs submitted entries for Best Club – twice the number we usually have – and we received 34 submissions for individual recognition – three times the usual amount. This tremendous response by you all is no doubt in part due to the conver­sations we had at the Training Day and our countless reminders ever since! Of course this gave us more of a headache at the Awards meeting and inevitably it raised the bar but that is to be welcomed and I hope the trend continues in the future. Whilst it may not be the same as getting the award handed over in person, the accolades and congra­tula­tions that our worthy winners deserve are not diminished in any way. You will see the outstanding efforts made by some of our members and how well they are regarded. To those who lost out this year, there will be many more oppor­tuni­ties in the future so - nil desperandum! We will of course submit the appropriate winners to the National Awards Committee.

Last but not least, these are exceptional times and HASSRA will take its share of the fallout. Regrettably, events such as Sports Day, the Festivals, AGMs, meetings etc are all in jeopardy and we face a bleak summer. In the coming days/weeks the HASSRA Board will try to think of things that may help us to keep in touch with our members, to keep the HASSRA wheels rolling and if there is anything you think we can do in this direction then please let us know. Maggie Smith, our publications Editor, will coordinate all suggestions/­­­ideas that come forward.

Let us hope that this is all over sooner than later and we can pick up where we left off. I hope you and those close to you get through this without any serious effect on your health, this coming from a decrepit 73-year old who is facing house arrest – the wife is not amused!

Look after yourselves.

All the best

Paul W.
HASSRA SE Chairman.
