Fiona Whittington

“Fiona is close to finishing her association with the Branch and this would be a wonderful way to thank her.  In many ways she has held the Branch together as she has always been there to help, advise or discuss issues which have arisen - whether this be to organisers, parents or children.  She understands what the Pony Club wants to achieve and the Rules that they have in place.  Fiona is loyal and committed with a sense of fairness and together with her knowledge, she has been able to know what is best for our members at any time during their life in the Pony Club. 

Fiona is not only secretary of the Branch, she has also run our annual two horse trials, our hunter trials and has been responsible for the organisation of our B and A candidates.  She has also fielded the C and C+ members and always goes that ‘extra mile’ even when it makes considerably more work for herself.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my now ended 30 years with the Eridge and I can truthfully say I wonder if this would have been possible without Fiona - she has been my right hand for many years and I can not imagine there are many people whose sense of duty, commitment and sheer grit has influenced the success and smooth running of a Branch as Fiona’s has for our Eridge”.
