128TH SBH ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING – Took place on Tuesday 27 November in the Fez Bar, East Stand, Allianz Park.
On an atrocious evening of persistent rain, the meeting commenced with some 120 members present, made up of our Coaches, Athletes, Officials and Parents.
The opening address was by Club Chairman TONY SUNDERLAND with apologies for absence, followed by the proposal and seconding of the 2017 AGM minutes. It was noted that there were no matters arising.
General Secretary PHILIP CUNNINGHAM then gave a summary of the Annual Report for the year ended 30 September 2018. He emphasised what a tremendous year it had been for the club with a record number of Club Records, also our successes especially from our Young Athletes was awesome with many of them being ranked in the UK top ten. The Annual Report makes an excellent read –
Treasurer GEOFF MORPHITIS gave a detailed report of the Club Accounts which overall disclosed a healthy profit, but emphasized that we cannot rely on London Marathon for future revenue. This being the case GEOFF had carried a review of club subscriptions of other large T&F clubs and found that our annual subscription was substantially cheaper than all the other comparable clubs. It was then proposed that from 1 December 2018 that subscriptions should increase by £10 to £45, this was proposed and seconded with no objections.
The list of Club Officers was proposed and seconded en-bloc. GEOFF pointed out that there are 3 vacancies on the Club Council, which meets 3-4 times a year. If any athlete or parent is interested please contact GEOFF, all you will be required to do is to attend the meetings, normally on a Monday evening and give your opinion.
TONY SUNDERLAND then covered the remaining items on the agenda, firstly Election of Vice Presidents the list was proposed and seconded. Next was the existing rule 7 of the constitution to be removed with immediate effect, as the England Athletics process for complying with the new UKA Rule for changing clubs had effectively made the existing Rule 7 redundant, this was proposed and seconded.
The Club has been operating with an “Executive” with delegated powers for the “Officers” which are the Chairman, General Secretary and Treasurer with Bryan Smith co-opted. Bryan wishes to stand down and it was proposed that Dave Bedford would be co-opted in his place. It was noted that Dave is a non-exec. member of the UKA board. This was agreed, and it was agreed that the “Executive” be formally added to the Club Constitution at the AGM.
Proposal – The new Rule 9 shall read as follows.
‘The Council shall have the power to co-opt members at their discretion. The Council shall also have the power to appoint an Executive Committee to address any urgent issues arising between Council meetings and to make decisions on behalf of the Council. The Executive Committee shall comprise of the Chairman, the General Secretary and the Treasurer together with such co-opted members as nominated by the Council. The Chairman will report back at the next Council meeting.’ Proposed and seconded.
Following the conclusion of the AGM, the presentation of the 2017-2018 cross country and the 2018 T&F season awards took place. It was indeed a pleasure to present the awards to all winners, after writing about them week in, week out. GEOFF MORPHITIS gave an introduction to all winner’s achievements throughout the past year.
There were 2 special awards presented. PHILIP CUNNINGHAM gave a heart-warming introduction on them. Firstly, to TONY SMITH whose dedication to the club is second to none. TONY joined the club in 1973, and then in 1981 took on the role of Young Athletes Manager cross country and road relays, which with success after success handed over the reins in 2016. Although he still an ever present at all fixtures. On a personal note, TONY has been such a great help to me since I took on the role of the Newsletter editor, although on numerous occasions when I rang him, his wife JEAN answered, would tell me what the true TONY was really like (I think that is for another day, although I will not mention those pyjamas).
Last but not least Mr & Mrs Shaftesbury, JOYCE and BRYAN SMITH who have both been members of Shaftesbury since 1954. JOYCE MBE is one of the clubs most accomplished athletes winning the first two London Marathons, also she competed in the 1972 Munich and 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games where she finished 11th in the Marathon at the age of nearly 47. Bryan is one of the most respected coaches in England, and many of our athletes have progressed no end under his guidance. His organisation skills are exceptional and were recognised by his Directorships at both London Marathon and UK Athletics. In recent years, they have both been the driving force as Team Managers behind our successful Girls’ team in the EYAL.
To conclude the evening a video was played on the big screen of the Club Connect relays which took place in the London Stadium. The Under 15 Boys team of CHIMA ONUORA, REMI JOKOSENUMI, NICHOLAS SAVVA and KOFI OWUSU produced a time of (44.06) which was a British Club record and UK No.1 all-time club team.
A big thank you to FIONA GROOM who managed the collection and ordering of the SBH trophies, and her help at the AGM. Also KENNY GROOM for an excellent set of photographs, which I will publish next week, probably on the SBH website

WELCOME TO VALHALLA – In March the Danish city of Aarhus is poised to stage the toughest and most imaginative IAAF World Cross Country Championships in history
For cross-country traditionalists who enjoy mud and hills, the next World Championships in Aarhus will not disappoint. Such is the gruelling and picturesque nature of the terrain, athletes and fans will think they have arrived in heaven. Or, as the Vikings would say, Valhalla.
The March 30 event is being held in Viking territory, with the centrepiece of the venue being the Moesgaard Museum – which is full of historical artefacts from Denmark’s rich and rugged past.
Elite runners in the championship races – plus young athletes in schools and club events and recreational runners in a special mass race – will charge up and down the steep, grassy roof of the museum.
Elsewhere, they will face challenges such as a mud pit, sand pit and water splash, while also running through tented spectator zones where cheers and music might, if they’re lucky, take their minds briefly off the pain on a course that is relentlessly unforgiving and does not involve a single stretch of flat ground.
