Little change at Orihuela Costa AGM


Little change at Orihuela Costa AGM

The Annual General Meeting of The Orihuela Costa and District Branch of the Royal British Legion was held at the Olympia Restaurant in Mil Palmeras last Thursday with virtually the whole committee being returned to serve for another year unopposed.

The only changes saw the resignations of the Vice Chairman, Walter Shatford, and the Membership Secretary, Tony Blackband, who, after two or more years serving, both felt that it was time to sit back.

Walter Shatford was replaced by Eddie Colman, who will combine his new position of VC with that of the Poppy Appeal Coordinator, while Tony Blackband was replaced by the youngest member of the branch, Walter Monfort Torné, who is a partner in the law firm Fernández & Monfort based in Playa Flamenca.

Being a Spanish National, and a local solicitor, it is felt that Walter will be able to open up new avenues for the branch and help it to forge new links within the Spanish Community.
