ESRA Central District meeting on Wednesday.


It was a sea of change at the ESRA Central AGM held at Henri’s restaurant in Palma on Wednesday, as members elected and welcomed what was a new team to guide the district to new heights and to continue with the impetus in attracting new members and a full social calendar. The outgoing chairman Michael Booker reported that the district was in excellent financial health, it was increasing its membership and he was delighted to remain on the new committee as a voting member. It had been a challenging last year but all goals were accomplished and all agreed that the new team would bring new ideas, new events and attract new members to the district. The district probably has the youngest committee in ESRA, and they are not all English, as there are Dutch, German and Irish people on the committee. What with this district taking in Palma, out to Llucmajor and Soller, the opportunities of bringing in new members, enjoying events, lunches and more could never have been better.

It was a productive AGM but some members were certainly challenged in getting to the AGM by the taxi drivers demonstrations in Palma, which made travel difficult. The lunch was served following the AGM and all enjoyed the chat and banter, as they say, over the meal and vino.

The new committee is looking to meet in the coming weeks to put together plans for the months ahead and even over lunch new ideas were put forward by members. All is set for a good year ahead.

The district appointed David Whitney, who is also the ESRA president , as the new chairman. All are looking forward to the next coffee morning and monthly lunch and the district welcomes you to come along.
