On the 12th of November at the Branch AGM in Loughborough, I stood down after four years as your Branch
I would just like to take this opportunity to thank our excellent committee and loyal membership for their support during my time in the chair.
I believe we have moved the Branch forward significantly, particularly in respect of communication with our members. The broader use of the web page, the creation of the Facebook page and the introduction of on-line newsletters have been a great step forward. The addition of ‘easyfundraising’ to our Poppy Appeal armoury has also been very successful.
My successor, Nick Berry, is a former regular Royal Air Force officer who now serves in the Reserve. A wee
bit younger than most of the committee, he will bring innovation and enthusiasm to his time as Chairman.
Please give him the same support as you have given to me over the last four years.
