Christian Williams R and Margit Stæhr

At the recent council meeting two of our most faithful and hard working members decided to step down. We are enormously grateful for all the inspirational input and sheer hard work and dedication they have both shown over many years.

Farewell and thank you to our chairman Christian Williams R who has served as a brilliant ambassador for the Anglo-Danish Society and opened many doors for us through his gentle but persuasive personality.

A sad farewell also to Margit Stæhr who has revolutionised Anglo-Danish Society during the 16 years she has served us in practically every capacity.
Margit has chosen to relinquish her roles of Scholarship Secretary and Chair of the Scholarship Committee and is succeeded in those roles by Wayne Harber.

Grateful thanks to all three.
