I am sad to inform you that our Chairman, Brian Maile, has been struck very suddenly by a serious illness. He is currently undergoing treatment for a cancer related tumour. Brian has relinquished his Chairmanship role with immediate effect and Mick Fletcher, as Vice Chairman, will be taking over the Chairman’s responsibilities.
Brian had intended to stand for a further year as Chairman at the AGM in October. However in the current circumstances he will not be standing. A call for nominations will be included in the July Calendar.
This message has also been sent by email, however Board recognises that some members do not have access to email or the website and therefore to provide timely communication of this important news please pass this message on to other members.
I am sure you will all join with me in wishing Brian a speedy recovery.
