Goodbye and Welcome

In November at our Annual Business Meeting we bid farewell to John Woodall, who has been our Chairperson for the last 5 years. As well as keeping the Area on an even keel, John has attended many meetings locally and nationally on our behalf and presided over what proved to be a difficult financial period, which we are now hopefully coming through. He has worked tirelessly and the Area Committee thanked him for all his hard work for Cruse Nottinghamshire.

In his chairman’s report, John (who likes to be busy and volunteers for 8 organisations) said Cruse hasn’t been the most fun but certainly has been the most satisfying. When he was contacted a couple of weeks later he said he is missing Cruse more than he thought he would!

Jim Aleander has kindly agreed to take on the position of Chair and we look forward to working with him.
