AGM 2018 - A new Chairman, a new era for the Society
At the Annual General Meeting held on 20 March, it was announced that, sadly, Peter Thompson had stood down from the Chairmanship.
Peter was only the second Chairman of the Society, having taken over from its founder Col Swift. In recognition of his leadership over 25 years, the Society presented Peter with a copy of the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust's newly published book Wild Wiltshire, which is a collection of inspiring colour photographs illustrating the county's habitats and living landscapes of woodland, meadow, downland, plants and animals.
Peter's own favourite wild animal is the bat and the photo shows Committee member Lizzy Paylan presenting Peter (left) with his very own - one of the delightful soft toys she now makes of many people's favourite animals - watched by incoming chairman Peter Shallcross.
