SIMCAS thanks Dr Alan Pearce as he moves on.
Dr Alan Pearce has announced that he is moving away from the SIMCAS area (Kent, Surrey and Sussex) and so will also be leaving SIMCAS, and relinquishing Chairmanship. He made the announcement at the SIMCAS members’ meeting on 28 Oct 2019. The chair now passes to Dr Rowley Cottingham. Rowley said, “It is difficult to express enough thanks from SIMCAS and on behalf of the community for the committed work Alan has put in since the very earliest days in 1991, responding at all hours and in all weathers to a wide variety of incidents. Alan has also chaired SIMCAS tremendously ably, and I am grateful to him for leaving the charity in such a healthy state.”
