New Group Organiser at Ringwood

 

After 15 years, Paul Pinhorne is stepping down from leading the Ringwood Group to concentrate on his recent appointment as Chairman of the Hampshire Genealogical Society.

At their September meeting he handed the reins to Alison Davis who has been a member of the Ringwood group for a number of years.   Alison has already come forward on a number of occasions to lead the meeting in Paul’s absence and she brings many skills that make her an ideal candidate to lead the group.

Paul thanked the Ringwood members for supporting him over these past 15 years and hoped they will provide Alison with the same support in this new era.  At end of meeting he was presented with bottle of wine and a garden gift card as a token of the Group’s appreciated.
