The committee and members past and present would like to say a huge thank you to Julia who has given so much time and effort to the role. Julia an ex AVPC member herself, has been actively involved in the branch over the last 15 years. She has had several roles, having been team manager of various disaplines, organiser of many rallies and competitions before and then along side her Assistant DC role. We hope that Julia can now spend more time on her own horse and although Aidan is now working full time, we will hopefully still see her around at pony club.

Thank you Julia
