Special Thanks to Carol Sangster
Staff and Board Members attended a special afternoon tea at the Assembly House, arranged as a thank-you to Carol for all of her hard work. It was a wonderful opportunity to come together and mix with people we haven't had the chance to see over the past two years due to the pandemic. Carol happily opened a number of gifts from our collection for her, including a silk scarf and a beautiful specially engraved vase. We all thank Carol for her selfless commitment to the Society, and she definitely won't be a stranger in future as we hope she'll be dropping in to see us from time to time!
We would like to thank Carol for her tireless support to the Society as Chairman over the last 9 years. The recent few years have not been easy with Covid and the rent overcharging issues, but Carol has guided us safely through them and leaves the Society in a strong and stable position. Carol is a people person, and care and support for our staff and tenants has been at the heart of her tenure as Chairman. Her name will be remembered with fondness, and we wish her every good health in her ‘retirement’ from the Society and in her future ventures and interests.
Following the AGM in March, a new Chairman, Jon Boon was unanimously elected to the position following his nomination and seconding by members of the Board. Gill Tewson was elected as Vice-Chairman
