AGM Update


Thank you to everyone who came to our AGM last night.


We would like to say a massive thank you to Sue Bradbrooke who stood down as Chair after 9 years in office. She has done an amazing job during that time and overseen many changes.


Our current Vice Chair Rosie Fell has bravely taken over the role of Chair. We wish her well in her new post and

are sure she will do a brilliant job too.


For a full list of our Trustees please see our Team Page.
