Donated by James Godber, the then Honorary Secretary, in 1986, this trophy is awarded annually to the club member or members who, in the personal judgement of the Honorary Secretary, has greatly contributed to the club, above and beyond what might be expected from an ordinary member.

This year I have decided to award the Secretary's Shield to Grace Mackintosh Sim in particular for her hard work, tremendous enthusiasm and real commitment to the juniors. In my opinion, the juniors section is an important and valuable part of the club’s offering - I would hope the source of some future club members. Grace is core part of what we offer to the juniors.

In accepting the award, Grace made clear that she wanted to accept it also on behalf of all of the other members of the juniors team, all of whom are mentioned in the Committee report prepared for the AGM.
