We are sorry to announce that John Rhodes has reluctantly decided to step down from his role as a BGAS Trustee and Chair of the Society’s Library committee, for family reasons. The Society are indebted to John for the interest he has shown in the BGAS library over many decades and for his outstanding leadership as Chairman of the Society’s Library committee since 2014. We are delighted to confirm that John will remain a member of the Library committee however, where his new role will be to make recommendations for the purchase of acquisitions to enhance the Society’s collection. The Hon General Secretary has assumed responsibility for the management of the Society’s collection until a permanent replacement can be found to take on this Trustee role.
Meanwhile, members are reminded that the BGAS library remains open to visitors. The library is located at the University of Gloucestershire’s Admin Centre at Hardwick Campus, Cheltenham. Anyone wishing to use the collection should contact Louise Hughes at:
