The UKBGF Board would like to thank John Wright, Sean Williams, Jon Barnes, Ian Tarr and Eric McAlpine for the part they played in the formation of the UKBGF and for their invaluable contributions to the organisation whilst serving as members of the Interim Board and subsequently the first elected Board (2015-6). John decided not to stand in the December 2014 UKBGF elections, while Sean, Jon, Ian and Eric retired at the end of the first Board’s term. Phil Tutchings and Darren Woodcock, whilst not Board members, have also worked hard on behalf of the UKBGF and we hope they will continue to support us.
