Retirement Of Team Leaders
ALAN SAVORY, DAVID TWEDDLE AND SHEILA ALDOUS RETIRES

With effect from 1 July 2020, Alan Savory, David Tweddle and Sheila Aldous will have retired from the IPHAS team. Alan and David have been Senior Consultants for a number of years: Alan has been with IPHAS since the beginning in 1993 and David joined in 2005. Sheila has been the Membership Secretary, and has handled administration details since 2009.

The clock has beaten us in that we have reached an age where family and personal reasons require us to retire to a more peaceful life without the complications of park home legislation, tribunals and government meetings.

Sadly, we are also losing Pat Winfield from the post of membership secretary which she has held for a number or years.

But, IPHAS will carry on its work, overseen by the remaining consultant and advisors. We wish them every success in the future.
