After only a short spell at the helm, our chairman John Bird has decided to step down. John said “After 15 years on the PCA committee in various supporting roles, I had some reservations about becoming chairman. Although starting optimistically, I found that things simply weren’t working for me. Rather than let this drag on in an unsatisfactory way, I decided it would be better for me and the PCA if I stepped down now. My affection and regard for the PCA is undimmed, and I will try to help out in some capacity in the future”. We’ll bring you more details of our reshuffle in the next edition of the PCA newsletter.
