For the past number of years, the Society has been endeavouring to combat the effects of the world downward economic trend and been looking for alternative income streams. After many vigorous debates, professional advice and the forensic analysis of The Societies financial sustainability the inevitable decision has been made to restructure the office. The sustainability and longevity of the Society is our prime objective. Over the last few years, every effort has been made to cut costs whilst still providing quality service to the members. However, despite conscientious efforts to curtail spending and adopt additional income streams the unfortunate conclusion has be made that the only long term solution is to reduce staff numbers. This decision was not made lightly as all of our staff are valuable. This initial step brings us closer to a stable future. Please be assured that all enquiries and transactions will be handled as efficiently as possible during this transition. We wish Harold and Laura all the best in the future and thank them for their contributions during their time with the Society. Your ongoing support is appreciated.
