It is with regret that I have to advise you that I have had to resign as Chairman due to health reasons. I will be going in hospital early in the New Year for major surgery, and am advised that full recovery can be up to four months. In the meantime Jim will stand in as Chairman until a new committee can be elected in the New Year when circumstances allow. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as Chairman with the group and thank all the committee for the support they have given me during my tenure.

It just remains to wish you all as happy as Christmas and New Year that the Covid restrictions will allow and hope that it will not be long before the group can resume its activities, in support of Diabetes UK.
