LKR AGM – Monday Nov. 16, 2020, 7pm – VOTING RESULTS

To all and each member of Linlithgow Kayak Racing SCIO, thank you for your continued support and confidence in returning me as Chairperson for a further period. I am pleased to be able to tell you, the election results from tonight’s AGM were as follows:

  • Chairperson and Board member – Gilbert Speirs
  • Treasurer and Membership Secretary and also Board Member – Stephen Patterson
  • Secretary and Board member – Cecile Redmond
  • Safeguarding and Child Protection Officer and Board member – Jacqui Brockway
  • Head Coach and Board member – Derek Marshall
  • Sub Committee members:
    • Lorraine Speirs
    • Fiona MacBeth
    • Judith Young
    • Morag Patterson
    • Junior representative Ruari Burnett

You’ll gather from the detail above that the membership voted unanimously in favour of registering as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO). This gives the organisation, we call it a “club”, the legal standing to be able to sign a lease. 


The AGM was also overwhelmingly in support (97%) of an experimental period of renting a light industrial unit at Park Farm, Linlithgow. 
As the weeks progress, we will keep you informed. Thank you again for your confidence. Gilbert
