Unfortunately I have to confirm that Phil Lambert has proffered his resignation from the role of Chairman of the Hertfordshire Archery Association. He and his wife are moving to Shropshire in the next few weeks.
In his letter Phil says:-
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has helped me over the last 15ish years in this role,”
“I have enjoyed the privilege of helping the county over the years and would like you to thank everyone who has helped me with everything I have tried to do, including shooting a bow and wish the Hertfordshire Archery Association every success (unless you come up against a Shropshire team of course!). Union, Trueheart and Courtesie.”
Phil has certainly embodied this motto of our sport’s governing body. His contribution to the Association has been immense on many levels. As well as his personal participation as a county team archer, he trained to County Coach level and gave his time to assisting archers from many clubs and regularly attending the winter squad meetings. He has been County Chairman for many years, bringing his fairness and open attitude to many situations. More recently he has been the Treasurer of the Herts Group of Archery Coaches.
He will be greatly missed, in ALL these capacities, as well as for his bonhomie and support for his colleagues. Meetings will not be same without his humour, even the bad jokes!
I know that you will join me in wishing Sue and Phil a very happy future in their new home and county.
