This ribbon is embellished with the names of all the previous presidents from the origination of the club in 1950.

Under the direction of John Berry, the club managed to raise a total of £20,000 for good causes in the community and internationally.

Jim Moseley was elected as secretary and Bill Taylor was elected as treasurer while Chris Buckingham was named the president elect ahead of 2021/22.
