David stood down as NCLS Secretary at the 2024 AGM – following a move to Norfolk, he had found it increasingly difficult to attend Committee and Society meetings and had decided to give up the role.

He was thanked by President Bill Russell and Chairman David Beaumont for his service to the Society and presented with an engraved tankard as a mark of appreciation.
