At our AGM on Monday Yvonne Miles stood down as Chairman after 7 years prior to that she was Secretary and speaker finder, making a total of 11 years.
Shirley Watson also stood down as Secretary after 9 years and was on the Committee a few years before that.We thank both Yvonne and Shirley for all that they have done for the Guild – they will be greatly missed but we hope they will continue to enjoy all our activities from the side lines.
Susanne Stedman has kindly agreed to be Branch Secretary but unfortunately the position of permanent Chairman is still to be confirmed. For the meantime members of the Committee will take it in turn to cover this role for three month at a time with Clare Russell starting the new arrangement.
