Kim and I made a very big decision in our lives last week.
“After many weeks of discussion, Kim and I have decided to step down from our positions as Secretary and President of the group, and will be tendering our resignations from the Melton Sustainable Living Group effective 30th June 2013 so that we can focus more on our family and lifestyle.
We realise that this may come as a shock to some of you, but we feel that after four years serving in these two roles, it is time for others to carry the group forward into the future. Therefore these positions will be vacant and will need to filled by other persons in the group. If no one fills these roles then the group will unfortunately fold.
Our last event will be Saturday 15th June at the BYO Pizza Oven evening commencing at 5 pm. The first hour will be an AGM to discuss the future of the group and put forward any nominations that may have been received. All nominations to be received by Saturday 8th June 2013.”
This has not been an easy one for us. As founding members of this community group, to take a step back and reassess our lives is a big deal. We found that we have been running at full throttle for far too long. This could have been part of the reason for illnesses, and the like.
Anyway, I hope that a few people step up and take on these roles, as I would hate to see the group fold. But if that is what happens, then so be it. It has been great fun, but tiring.
So that is our news. I think it will be a shock to a few.
