RWSW Seeking Secretarial Support


Our President Robert Macdonald writes:


I am deeply sorry to have to report that we in the RWSW are soon to lose our excellent secretary, Mariella Scott. Mariella has found her increasing burden of work difficult to manage alongside her full time job and other commitments and recently announced that she would have to step down from the post of Hon Secretary as of the end of August 2021. During the last few years she has been a great asset to our society and I am sure I speak for all the committee when I say that we shall miss her greatly.


We need to find a person preferably enthusiastic about the work of the society and with practical online abilities. If there is any member with some time available and the necessary abilities we would love to hear from you. Also, we would be very grateful if all members could spend a moment or two thinking of any of their friends or acquaintances who might like to take over the post which is challenging but which also can be very interesting for the person involved.


Please contact the RWSW President and Treasurer via this website if you are interested in finding out more.

Please note this is a voluntary role which carries a yearly honorarium.
