East of Scotland Branch News

From Loraine Hartley

The Branch held its first business meeting this year on 23 March. Douglas Robertson, Group Sales Manager for Bidfood, gave a presentation about the challenges faced with Brexit and COVID to the supply chains and beyond. This was followed by a Q&A session. We would like to thank Douglas for this informative session.

As we moved in to April, our very own Brian Robb took up the post of National Chair and we wish him every success in the role, continuing the great work of previous Chairs and improving the future of the HCA. We also congratulate him on becoming a Grandad for the first time following the birth of his beautiful granddaughter Leia Rose.

Congratulations also to Branch member Yvonne Batehup who has celebrated a milestone birthday. Although we couldn’t get together to celebrate, she assures us a great time was had.

And finally, with the vaccine programme and the opening up of business, we are aiming to start our recruitment campaign and hopefully meet up with retired members who we have not seen or heard from in a while.
