Terry Padgett honoured with Life Membership of the Association

Published on: 21st July 2015

At the recent AGM of Equitoy Terry Padgett was honoured with a Life Membership of the Association.

Terry-PadgetHaving recently celebrated a significant birthday, Terry had offered to stand aside from the Equitoy Council to make room for younger Members. The meeting unanimously rejected the offer and instead made Terry a life member allowing him to attend as many or few council meetings as he wishes. He was presented with a crystal glass bowl to celebrate the honour.

Clive Shelton, chairman of Equitoy thanked Terry for his many years of service to the council, rarely missing a single meeting and often travelling specially from business trips in the Far East. Records of the early years of Equitoy (formerly the British Toy Importers’ Association) are sparse, but it is thought that Terry has served for up to 50 years in one capacity or another.
