We were very sorry when Sian Middlebrough announced at our AGM in October, that she no longer wished to continue in her role as Chairman – a position that she has filled most admirably for the past four years. Our mood was lifted, however, when Sian proposed Nicola Bell as our new Chairman, seconded quickly by Eileen Murray and the position accepted by Nicola.
Sian is happily continuing in her role as Bookings Manager and it is really quite impressive that she has juggled both roles for all this time.
Nicola joined us in 2015 as Secretary and has kept our meetings organised and expertly documented, while also producing our periodic newsletters. Nicola works as a Project Manager in the NHS and brought with her a wealth of skills – which we are looking forward to sampling further in her new role as Chairman.
Of course....now we will be looking for a new Secretary....watch this space!
