John Richomme of Smiths Gore, the rural property consultants who provide the secretarial services and provide management advice in regards to all matters related to CWMCL, especially in regards to the management of the woodland, has recently retired. I am sure you will join the Board in giving our thanks to John for all the work he has carried out over the transitional period during 2012 and we are grateful to the service he has provided us.
He is being replaced by Chris Anderson, who we welcome to the company. Chris has worked for Smiths Gore for the last 5 years in the North-West of the country, managing a number of private and institutionally owned rural estates, encompassing the full range of issues that arise. His management work included the 6 Duchy of Lancaster estates located in the NW, the only other Duchy in the country in addition to the Duchy of Cornwall. Prior to this, Chris spent 6 years in the British Army as an officer in the Royal Engineers. Chris will continue to be assisted by Ross Collins.
