The Mid-Ulster Section held its AGM on Wednesday 10th October in the Royal Hotel, Cookstown.

I want to advise of some New Positions Filled at this meeting.

Chairman:- Mr William Bowman

Vice Chairman:- Mr Malcolm Wilson

Secretary:- Mr Ian Scott

New address details:- 67 Morgans Hill Road, Cookstown, Co Tyrone, BT80 8HD

Email address:- Ianscott1986@hotmail.co.uk Mobile:- 07547304434

All other positions were elected on block and remain the same.

At this point may i wish the new secretary Ian every good luck in his new role. 

I decided to step down at last nights meeting after serving the Section for quite a number of years due to my own personal reasons.  I would like to thank everyone who has supported and assisted me over the years.  To all the Mid-Ulster bands for their continued support and to the NI Branch members i thank you each and everyone for all your assistance. Without everyone's help and support Cookstown would not have such a successful competition.

I thank the outgoing Chairman Lowry Ferguson for all his guidance and assitance throughout our time working together as a great team for the Section.

I know that Mid-Ulster section will continue to go from Strength to Strength and i personally wish Ian, Willie and Malcolm every success in their new roles.

Kind Regards

Gloria Aicken
