John Broom says he will lead the ex students’ group for another 12 months before standing down

Woodroffe Association chairman John Broom will be at the helm for just one more year.

Accepting re-election at last night’s (Thursday) annual meeting, the dedicated officer, who has just masterminded another successful reunion for old students of the Lyme school, announced that he would lead the committee for another 12 months only, after which a successor was required.

Mr Broom, who is entering his eighth year in office, reviewed a very successful year, making special mention of the association’s donation of £500 to the Woodroffe School’s drama department.

This money, he said, would help towards the cost of its next production, “Little Foot”, which if successful would be a contender for inclusion in a National Theatre production.

Retiring treasurer Nicola Moore reported a sound financial position, with a paid up membership of around 250.

The new treasurer is Roz Cupper, a qualified bookeeper and an employee of Barclays Bank for 30 years.

Re-elected were David Cozens (president), Julian Shaw (vice president) and Judy Palmer (secretary).
