Leader's Award for Vanessa Ekers
13 February 2009
Vanessa, Colts Membership Secretary, has worked relentlessly for the colts section all through this winter already. She has organised the indoor training schedules/administration for all members, together with being a focal and contact point for any new interested player - ensuring they become involved with the club prior to the outdoor seasons starts.
Vanessa has created a new registration process for the 2008 season, and has worked with our child welfare officer on many issues to ensure Shenfield CC complies with all protection issues. She has produced forms, sent them out, collated information, assisted with information for the developing website. The whole club is indebted to her forward-looking and administration skills. She finds time to support all the team managers and coaches when ever required, and indeed liaises with other clubs concerning future fixtures. She ensures that not only do all the managers have wickets to play on - but that they all have snacks/beverages to finish with! Her energy has also seen her already planning numerous BBQs, raffles and support charity events on behalf of the colts sections for 2008. We are lucky to have her.
The Mayor, Dudley Payne, presented Vanessa with her certificate and medal during a ceremony at the club on 13th February 2009.
