Our Association continues to grow from strength to strength as our membership fast approaches the ‘200’ milestone and I’m proud to be stepping down having achieved what we have over the last 3 years. A large heart felt thank you to the cast of contributors to this success, in particular the Committee, past and present. The Association would not be what it is without them and its been a privilege supporting and working with them. I look forward to the next Chapter for our Association and working closely with Zoe’
