Chairperson of the Society Resigns

Posted by K Pulford on Sun, 11th Aug 2019

It is with regret that I have to announce the resignation of our Chairperson Samantha Godley who has tendered her resignation effective from 10 August 2019.

Samantha has understandably been obliged to stand down following recent surgery.

Together with our Trustees, I would like to thank Samantha for her service to the Society during the past ten months wish her a speedy and healthy recovery.
