After 16 years in post, our Steward and Stewardess, Dave and Ruth Pearson, have decided that the time is right for them to retire from their role with the Club.
Following the closure of the Club due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the Club being established as a community Vaccination centre, which came to an end last week, they have decided that it is time for someone else to take up the reins and help take the Club into the future.
When we were informed of their decision, we did not hesitate to start seeking a suitable replacement and we are extremely pleased to announce that Paul Bond will be joining us as our new General Manager as from 1st July 2021.He will be working with Dave and Ruth for a short time to ensure a smooth transition.
Many of you will know Paul from his time working at the Black Lion in Leighton Buzzard, and from the recent Sunday morning catering at the Club.
Paul has a wealth of experience in hospitality and will be a fantastic asset to the Club as we build for the future of rugby in Leighton Buzzard and the surrounding area. He has experience not only of the hospitality industry but also of the Leighton Buzzard area, which we are sure will stand him in good stead with his mission to grow our offering at the Club and make it the place to visit and socialise.
A fuller profile for Paul will appear soon via our various media platforms.
On behalf of the Directors, General Committee, players, and members of the club, I would like to thank Dave and Ruth for all their work over the years and wish them the very best for the future. We will, I have no doubt, be seeing them back at the Club for various functions, where they will always be welcomed.
