Richard Hobbs was welcomed as a new trustee while the annual meeting also recognised the services of retiring worker Peter Llewdib after nine years with the charity. 

Like many organisations, it has been a difficult year but one from which the charity is emerging in a strong position to resume activities based at Larkfield.
