It was announced today that Ben will be taking over from Jeff Lacey as roster clerk. After 15 years of service as roster clerk, Jeff has decided that it is a good time to relinquish that particlular role. Tom Couling was firing for Ben and today was to be Tom's last turn before retiring from the footplate after 28 years service on the railway. I am anticipating a report soon regarding Tom's time on the GWSR & the presentation that was made at Winchcombe during the afternoon.

Many thanks indeed to Andy, Jeff & Tom for all the hard work that they have put into the roles that they have, or are in the process of relinquishing, doubtless they will all relish the free time that they will now have on their hands.
Congratulations to Ben, Mark and Ian on their appointments, I am sure that they will all prove to be a great success in the roles that they are about to take up and judging by the number of emails that have been whizzing by during the course of today, they are also extremely popular appointments amongst the department members.
