STCRA Chairman, Mike Smith, last night announced that due to pressure of work and health problems, he felt unable to continue to fulfill his role as Chair.  Mike will continue as a committee member.

Nigel Harrison has agreed to take on the role of acting chair until the AGM.

The committee would like to express their thanks to Mike for taking over the chair at a difficult time and for his considerable contribution to the association over the last eighteen months.

The new chairman hails from Yorkshire;  his early memories are of grandfathers on both sides of the family being coalminers. He himself has worked both as a university lecturer and in the nuclear industry.  He holds degrees in both physics and music (applied physics!), but now spends much of his free time gardening and walking.  He retired and moved to Shrewsbury in 2013.
