WSRA chairman steps down

It is with deep regret that the Trustees have to announce that Paul Whitehouse has resigned as Trustee and Chairman, with immediate effect. Paul Writes “I have decided that the calls on my time elsewhere, particularly from my family, are too great for me to continue” Paul has been a Trustee and Chairman since the 2016 AGM and has led the organisation through the changes needed to implement the recommendations of the Coombes Report, so that we no longer carry out commercial activities, but concentrate instead on fundraising. Paul has been instrumental in bringing the various organisations on the railway into a closer working relationship, driving the movement towards ‘One Railway’.

Paul will be very much missed and we wish him all the very best for the future. Mike Sherwood has agreed to be ‘Acting Chairman’ until the AGM on 10th July.
