Terence Treeby

Dimmie Fleming Award citation - 2017

Terence has just retired from the Committee of the Devon Bridge Association having been a stalwart of the committee for the past fifteen years holding for all that time the position of secretary.

His efforts as the secretary have been exemplary, his influence and determination in reality held the committee together, giving past chairman and committee members what can only be described as an easy ride.

He was one of those people who would happily fill a gap if it were necessary. He took on the onerous task of organising the Devon Congress when no one else would come forward, and made it the success which it has been for the last five years. He has agreed to fill this capacity one more time for the 2018 Congress.

During his time as secretary he organised the venues, the dealing and directors for all County competitions even standing in at times to direct when the need arose.

He was a person who properly filled the role of secretary not confining himself to taking the minutes of committee meetings but acquainting himself with the County rules and regulations such that if anyone had a problem he could usually give them an answer straight away.

He performed his tasks with cheerfulness and with much patience for he was never known to lose his temper with anyone.
