Because of the pressure of other commitments, Michael Cook is relinquishing his office as treasurer of the society, so a replacement is needed to carry on the good work done by him over the last few years. He says that the job is not an onerous one and he will give all the assistance needed to ease his successor into the post.
Further information on what is involved can be obtained by getting in touch with Michael by e-mail.
We hope that a volunteer can be found, or failing that, suggestions for individuals who might be invited to volunteer would be welcome.
