Thanks as trustees step down

WE have said farewell and thanks to three of our trustees this week after combined service of 24 years.

Vice-chairman William Wydlbore-Smith, Christopher Bromfield and Alison Radevsky were congratulated for their dedication and support by the charity’s board at its AGM.

William has served with the Wiltshire Community Foundation for five years. William had a 40 year career as a solicitor working in the City of London, Bristol, Wiltshire and finally in Westminster for the last four years at Thrings LLP before retiring in 2013.

Alison has been with us for nine years. She moved to Devizes with her husband Richard in 2006 and wanted to get involved with the local community, so contacted the Community Foundation. She initially volunteered as a grants panel member.

Christopher has been a trustee for ten years.  He spent ten years working as a solicitor in the City of London and in New York before moving to Wiltshire where he was a partner in Wansbroughs in Devizes for more than 25 years before his retirement in July 2015.

Chief executive Rosemary Macdonald said: “We thank all three for their wonderful support over many years. Their experience and commitment has been invaluable and they have made a great contribution. They will all be very much missed.”
