Director
Friends of the Earth has appointed Andy Atkins as our new Executive Director.  He will leave his current post as Policy and Campaigns Director of relief and development charity Tearfund to join Friends of the Earth in late June, before replacing Tony Juniper as Executive Director later in the summer.

Co-ordinator
The April meeting (Monday 21st) was our AGM where our co-ordinator, Steve Goodacre, was re-elected by the group. Liddy Goyder was also re-elected  as the group’s treasurer. We also fed back our opinions to National FoE through the local groups’ questionnaire. We spent about £24 renewing the group’s web domain name for another 2 years
