News from High Ham CLT

6th January 2020

Nancy Green has decided that with her work and home commitments she cannot give the post of secretary the time it needs. So it is with sad regret that the board has accepted Nancy’s resignation from the post of secretary and board member. The board expressed their gratitude for Nancy’s endeavours and help in setting up the High Ham CLT.

High Ham CLT are glad to announce the appointment of Angie Marlow to Secretary and as a member of the Board. Bill Bishop
