Please join us in saying farewell to Morgan, who has decided to step down from his team role.

During the course of 2020 and the unusual circumstances that presented, Morgan contributed extensively to our social media content, and also dabbled in news articles and the websites.

We'd like to thank him for the time he dedicated to the site and community during the past year, and wish him well in pursuing more opportunities to further develop his content creation craft (and all the alliteration that will no doubt bring with it  ;) )!

Please join me in wishing Dan a fond farewell as he is stepping down from his role on the team.

Since joining in 2017 he has been a fantastic contributor, and a sure fine Forum Leader.

Thanks again Dan, and see you on an event (hopefully) later in the year. :8
