The President's Trophy (aka Norman Whyte Shield) was presented to the Club by Norman Whyte who was President 1957 to 1973. It is awarded annually for the best progress.
In 2012, the Shield was completely full with winners date plates, and underwent a complete refurbishment, with all the past winners names engraved on a plate on the reverse.
In 2019, it was awarded jointly to Mark Worsfold, Emma Kendall and Dan Hender. Mark has shown great determination to reach solo using a mirror to lip read the Instructors words. Emma has soloed, converted to Junior, and flown solo power. Dan has soloed on his 14th birthday, converted to Junior and K6.
