New Worth Society Chairman Announced
After 11 years of dedicated service, Nick Butterworth (G’76) is stepping down as the Chairman of the Worth Society. I am sure you will join me in thanking Nick most warmly for all the hard work he has put into developing the Society into the efficient and healthy organisation that it is today. Nick has looked on his time as Chairman as a privilege. I know he will continue to hold Worth and the Society very close to his heart.
I am delighted to announce that Jeremy Fletcher (G’72) has agreed to take Nick’s place as our new Chairman with immediate effect. We offer Jerry our support and prayers. Jerry has a true affection for Worth, and he looks forward to serving as Chairman and working with others to develop the Society. I do hope you will get the opportunity to meet him at one of our future events, and offer whatever support you can.
With every blessing and good wishes
Abbot Luke Jolly (G’71), Patron Worth Society
