My name is Ben Greenwood and I have had the pleasure of being Chair of the Branch for the last year. I have set up a monthly blog to try to keep you better informed in some of the things going on in the branch.
Paperwork for our Annual General Meeting has been sent out and it should be arriving in your letterbox soon. This year, we are running the AGM a bit differently than previous years. We are holding a hot supper and quiz night on March 1 at Blakey’s Café Bar. We are also buying every member a drink to thank them for being members – after all, the branch would be nothing without the members.
Since becoming Chair, the Branch has been committed to looking at ways of giving something back to members.
To meet this commitment, we have invested in Unison water bottles. This is also part of our efforts to improve health and wellbeing in the workplace. I am very pleased the Council’s Public Health team have backed the initiative. They are available on Q Floor and we will be also handing them out at events.
Finally, I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Ben Greenwood, Branch Chair
