Alastair Maltman, who has carried out the duties of Development Group Secretary for the past three years, has indicated that he will be standing down at the next AGM which will be held in April 2018; a replacement is therefore required to fill this post.

The Development Group caries out a hugely important role in developing curling in Moray, introducing and training new entrants to the sport, both junior and adult, through “Come and Try”, as well as running a very successful “Curling’s Cool” programme for the Moray primary and secondary schools.

The Development Group Secretary’s duties include producing and issuing agendas for meetings as well as taking minutes; he or she would also be responsible for dealing with any correspondence. Development Group Committee meetings are usually held in the Training Room at the Moray Leisure Centre in June, August, October, January and March each year with the AGM taking place in April.

There is a need for someone, who has an interest in promoting the sport of curling, to take on this satisfying and worthwhile role for the Development Group. Anyone who feels that they could commit some of their time should get in touch with Alastair who would be only too pleased to discuss in greater detail what is involved.

 Alastair can be contacted on 01343544306/077866592663/atcmaltman@btinternet,com
