At the AGM on 17th November, John Henson was appointed the Trust’s New Chairman
John has been a member of the Trust Board since the organisation was founded in 2002. Since then he has been very active with all initiatives undertaken and specifically spearheaded all of the 7 New Posh Fans Initiative we have undertaken to date.
