Annual General Meeting

Annual General Meeting 2019: an AGM to remember!

The AGM is the regular opportunity for members of Ribble Valley Jazz and Blues and friends to meet, not only to celebrate another successful year of great jazz music, but also to have a chat about what the future holds.

This year’s AGM was held on Wednesday 10thApril 2019, hosted by Clitheroe Rugby Club on Littlemoor Road Clitheroe.  It was a very useful and enjoyable event for all concerned. There was a special focus thanking the people who have made the club so great – with an especial thank you to Geoff Jackson, one of our founder members, who retired at the meeting. Further lifetime awards were given to Alfred Cerezo for his commitment to the club, Trish Ferrarin for bringing musical artistry, learning and outreach to the club, and Matt Evans, who has developed a strong partnership between The Grand (Clitheroe) and the Club. After celebrating our past success, we discussed the future with especial reference to the next chapter for the festival. Feedback from this session will be taken forward by the Trustee Board for decisions on our next chapter for the festival.

Our thanks to Cassis Collective and the Morris Sisters, who provided musical entertainment and so helped the evening go with a swing, to the provider of two wonder pavlovas to keep the brain cells ticking, and to Jenni Schumann and the Clitheroe Rugby Club who provided such a warm welcome.

Next year's AGM will be held by the end of March 2020. Put a note in your diaries and watch this space for more details. Hope to see you then!
