Trustee changes

Glenn Maybury is to step down at its annual general meeting in July, after eight years dedicated service to Elizabeth House. A trustee in 2011 and Chairman 2014–2017, he has served with great distinction.

For the past five years, honorary secretary Stephanie Diggon has worked tirelessly and with great commitment She will retire also as a trustee at the same time. Both Glenn and Steph will receive honorary life membership on their retirement.

Jenny Elton, an Elizabeth House volunteer for last 12 years will take over as honorary secretary, if elected by the membership at the AGM.

Glenn’s retirement creates an opportunity for a new trustee at Elizabeth House. Should anyone in the Cookham community wish to be considered as a trustee, please email a resume to the current chair, Chris Harris at chris.harris10@btinternet.com by mid July. No specific qualifications and expertise are required (although someone with a medical background would be welcome), other than an enthusiastic team player with an interest and desire to add value to the management and leadership of Cookham’s Centre for independent senior citizens.
