Welcome to Wales' Premier Athletic Club
together we are one

New Secretary

Friday 23 November 2012

At the club's Annual General Meeting held last night in the club room, retiring Secretary Tracy Allen handed the baton to Ann Cooper (pictured). Tracy was thanked for her two years as Secretary but will continue as the club's volunteer coordinator. Chairman Paul Darney thanked everyone who contributes to the running of the club, quoting the words of former President Ted Hopkins who said that "Cardiff is a great club because of the great people in it".

During his report, Paul highlighted the impact that the London Olympics had had on children wanting to take up athletics and that, in January, the club will be expanded to embrace the Cardiff Pumas, catering specifically for the under 11 age group. He also highlighted Rhys Williams' achievement in becoming European 400m hurdles champion.

Paul's full report can be read by clicking on CHAIRMAN'S REPORT.

With a surge in membership, the club needs more coaches and urges anyone interested in coaching to come along and help.

Treasurer Graham Webb pointed out the continuing high cost of travelling for club teams and that the overall costs of running the club in 2011-12 were £26,000. He explained the various items of income and expenditure. The full statement of income and expenditure can be viewed by clicking HERE.
