David James is standing down as secretary of the Welsh Group.
Elected secretary in 2013, he had previously been secretary of the Royal Watercolour Society of Wales. He has been excellent and has been an enormous support to the committee and the Group.
Fortunately, Neil Stone, recently retired after thirty years working in the public sector has agreed to take on the role. He has most recently been working as a policy wonk for the Ministry of Justice in London. He has had a life-long interest in art and we feel that he will carry on the good work done by David.
