ETF Annual General Meeting

Thank You

It promised to be one of the highlights of the year and it certainly didn't disappoint. ETF's Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held on Friday 13th September 2019 at the Boroughmuir Rugby Club, Meggatland Wynd.  There was a mixture of old and new faces and the general consensus was that it was a great night.  ETF would like to thank everyone who attended our AGM and for making it so successful.  Congratulations to John Aitken, Christine Hudson, Irina Lazarenko, Betty Stevenson, Davie Thomson and Maud Wylie who were elected to serve on the Federation's Executive Committee.  Thank you for your continued support of ETF.
