Helen Hosker -10 years (at least!) of Greening Chiddingfold


On 14 March at the Chiddgreen AGM, Helen Hosker stood down from chairing the committee after 10, or was it 11 years?

Both the founding members of  ChiddGreen, or Chiddingfold Local Agenda 21 as it was originally known, were there: Christine Tebbot and Rebecca Laughton thanked Helen for her leadership.

The list of events is growing, and the group has contributed to the village with litter blitzes, traffic calming measures, planting of  the school hedge, affordable housing schemes, cycle powered smoothies, Local Skills Day, Swap It events, visits, talks, the creation of the website, and more.     On everyone’s behalf, they thanked Helen and also Rosie Gill,  who is still the treasurer.

Helen was presented with an enormous bouquet of flowers (many thanks to Jasmine Bardell for arranging these so spectacularly) and a present.

Helen responded by thanking the committee for all their enthusiasm and hard work in making Chiddgreen a successful village group. Far from cycling off into the sunset, she will stay on the committee and promises to continue to make a significant contribution.

 Jane Devlin becomes new Chair

The meeting unanimously voted in a  new chair – Jane Devlin.  So apart

from Helen and Jane swapping places, the committee remains the same, with Rosie Gill as Treasurer, Lucy Hatcher as Secretary, and Karen Bardell, Wendy Lockwood, Jeanette Walker & Rachel Whitehead forming the rest of the team.

Please do contact Jane if you are interested in receiving email news, and details of  future ChiddGreen events.    jane@thedevlins.biz
