Hi all and I hope I find everyone well.
Let me begin by sharing some sad news with you, as Richard mentioned in his entry last week, Laura Ross who is the Service, Development and Delivery Officer is leaving us this week.:( I’d like to take the opportunity to wish her well in her move to Manchester and her new role. It has been a great pleasure in knowing and working with Laura. I know the local societies who Laura has been working with will miss her, I know they would like to send her their good wishes for the future.
