HAYLING ISLAND BUSINESSMEN’S CLUB Report – David Pawley
With the Annual Barbeque over and the Club in recess for August it is time to take stock on the year so far.
The Wally Egan award this year was given to James Adams for demonstrating a wide range of Enterprise skills during the year 9 “Design an App” Enterprise Challenge. This annual monetary award and suitably engraved Rose Bowl is made in memory of Wally who served HIBC both as Chairman and Secretary for many years until his death in 2007. The college selected James for the award because of the qualities displayed by him and for the considerable amount of resilience he showed throughout the challenge. Many congratulations to James.
At the same time The Geoff Foot Sportsperson of the Year award was made to Molly Money. This is a new trophy and monetary award in memory of Geoff who was a Club member for many years. The Club is pleased to sponsor this award to help promote sport at the College and was given to Molly for her outstanding contribution to sport.
Did you go to this year’s barbeque? Did you buy raffle tickets? Did you check them? If not then please go to the Club’s website as a number of prizes went unclaimed including the first prize. It could be you. Plans for next year’s Barbeque are already underway and the first meeting of the Barbeque Committee is due to take place in September. Arranging the event involves a great deal of hard work and anyone interested in lending a hand next year or indeed in joining the Club should contact our secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org .
