WRFT trustee changes and Newsletter 24

Posted: Thursday 20 November, 2008 @ 09:01:50

It was with considerable regret that our Chairman since 2006, Johnie Parry, announced his decision to stand down at the Trustees meeting on 12th November.  The remaining trustees would like to express their sadness that this has happened despite their full support for him.  He has been a trustee for most of the life of the Trust and his judgement and breadth of knowledge of all matters concerned with fish and fishing have been of enormous value.  

Standing down with Johnie, was Col Sandy Lindsay who was not only a founder trustee but has missed only one meeting of the Trust or its management group since the Trust came into being in March 1996.  His knowledge of the workings of the Trust and his eagle eye for detail were legendary.


The Trust’s current very strong financial position is in large measure due to the time and commitment of these two people who have both contributed so much and the remaining trustees wish to express their heartfelt thanks to Johnie and Sandy.


New trustees are Dr Barry Blake, Mark Williams and Graeme Wilson to whom a warm welcome is extended.  Mini-biographies of the new trustees will be posted shortly on the website.    John Mackenzie was elected as the new Chairman of trustees at the meeting.
