Stepped Down after 20 years service

Hi Dave,

Roger has decided to step down after 20 years of excellent service as Director of the VSS. A long service for any Section Director!

It is all explained in the past few VSS Circulars where Roger announced he would be standing down. We are very fortunate that Jeremy Shears agreed to take over from 1st September.

Also note that Roger is not disappearing from the VSS as he will continue on as Assistant Director. From personal experience I know how busy the VSS can be so I am sure Jeremy will appreciate the help.

Best wishes,
