PRESIDENT - Paul Lake
CHAIRMAN - Craig Thomas Email: [email protected]
Craig joined the branch as a founder member back in March 1999. He then took up the role of treasurer in September later that year. In the following March the Chairman at the time resigned and Craig was duly elected. He ended up performing both roles for a short time until November 2000 when Roger agreed to take up the Treasurers position. This then allowed Craig to concentrate on his role as chair right up to the present day.
