NEVILLE Fanning has been re-elected as president of the Warwick Show and Rodeo Society at the AGM held at the showgrounds last night.

Mr Fanning defeated former secretary Diane Coy by 14 votes to retain the top spot, with Shane Roche re-elected as vice president and all other executive positions uncontested.

The ongoing issue of the Ladies Auxiliary disbandment came no closer to resolution, with Mr Fanning floating a proposal to form two separate function committees which he said he would present to the newly-elected and expanded management committee.

Other issues discussed at the AGM included the society's $200,000 debt and asbestos inspections which have been carried out on showgrounds buildings.

 

Warwick Show and Rodeo Society AGM election results:

  • President: Neville Fanning
  • Vice-President: Shane Roche
  • Show Committee Chairman: Pat Flynn
  • Rodeo Committee Chairman: Terry Keogh
  • Campdraft Committee Chairman: Lorna Fanning
  • Management Committee: Christine Barbarierto, Ross Cameron, Murray Cooper, Jack Dwan, Geoff Grant, Bill Gross, Peter Hale, Mark Lawler, Robert Lindenberg, John Maher, Jenelle Matthews, Gerard O'Leary and Paul Swift.
