October 2019 Welcomes and Farewells

Yolanda Ibbett has retired from being a trustee after many years of supporting the Stables, both as a hands-on volunteer and then as trustee and treasurer.  She does not intend to lose touch with us and we shall hope to still see her!  Staff and trustees are very grateful for all she has done for us over the years.

We welcome Dudley Ferdinando as a new trustee.  Dudley has been known to us for a long while and brings much practical experience to the Trust.  


We are also pleased to announce the appointment of Elizabeth Elphick to be our Operations Manager.  Elizabeth volunteered for the Stables a decade ago so is no stranger to the project.  She started on 23 September and brings her skills and enthusiasm as she works with the staff team to take the project forward.



January 2019: Welcomes and Farewells

Kate has been part of the Stables Staff group for many years, not only looking after the finances, but also working on the Thursday gardening team.  Kate was presented with gifts in recognition of her long-term support for the Project.
