You hear people say, “Oh he’s a real asset to the village.” With no one is that truer than for Martin Gibbs and we at the Wychwood Magazine have been fortunate in having him as our Chairman not once but twice! Martin came to the Wychwoods in 2000 and, since then, has organised the Milton Fete for several years, been Chairman of the Tennis Club, done a long period of driving to support users of the surgery and the Day Centre and has sang with several choirs in the Wychwoods. He was advertising manager for this magazine and then Chairman more than ten years ago and has just stepped down from his second stint as Chairman from 2018. Always approachable and able to smooth any difficulties with practical advice, Martin and his trademark smart tie will be missed at our committee deliberations. Thanks for coming to our aid again Martin.
