THE 41st AGM of Dinas Powys Voluntary Concern saw a good crowd of supporters present to hear of progress over the last year and plans for the future.
The chairman, John Fanshaw, outlined how DPVC supported Dinas Powys residents, particularly the elderly with mobility problems and who wished to retain independence. Requests for DPVC’s help were increasing. This demand would continue to grow. New volunteers are always needed.
The formalities over, thanks were given to Barbara Daniels, who has stepped down as treasurer after long and outstanding service. Barbara was congratulated by Cllr Chris Franks on her efficiency and for the clarity of her accounts. The chairman then presented Barbara with tokens of esteem, including a certificate awarding her the honorary role of “Lifelong Escort” and a model of the DPVC minibus which reflected her role as Minibus coordinator. She will be greatly missed as treasurer but Barbara will continue as a supporter and fundraiser.
John Fanshaw was elected chairman, Alan Higgins, vice chairman, Wendy Lees secretary, Val Hartrey (Community Council), Leslie Robinson, Brian West, Chris Franks, Steve Nottingham, Colin Turner and Keith Hatton.
