We wanted to share an update after our MMPT AGM which recently took place.
After long signaled resignations from Simon and Dan, I'm excited to announce the new line up at the MMPT.
Current Secretary Jemima Briggs will be taking over the role of chair, Emily Steele will be the new treasurer and Angie Gibbons is joining as a trustee.
Whilst everyone is excited about the new team taking over the reins, we wanted to take this opportunity to offer huge thanks to both Dan and Simon. Dan has been involved and led the Trust during possibly the hardest and most turbulent period of it's existence and we wouldn't have survived if it wasn't for his unwavering passion for the work we do, his calm head and his kindness - thanks Dan! And whilst not being involved for as long as Dan, Simon has also had a very positive impact on the Trust. He joined on a short term basis to help move through the process of hibernating the Trust and his insights and expertise were vital to the successful transition - thanks Simon.
