I first joined the WFA in early 1981 and was soon appointed to organise the WFA Tours.

John Giles and I hit it off immediately. It did not take long before I became the Hon Secretary taking over the duties from John's wife, Margery.

A life-long friendship developed and, after John's death, Margery moved from their family home to be close to where both my mother and had our homes.

I was responsible for introducingTerry Cave to the WFA, with his friend Dick Burge (who sadly died some years ago).

Amongst many different aspects of the work I did for the WFA, I set up and developed the regional organisations, found the original Vice Presidents (all of whom I knew personally), established the commodities and started The Bulletin - to list just a few.

I am proud of what I was able to achieve and to point the WFA in the right direction.

I look now on how well the WFA has developed and improved.

Site news

The WFA's site is undergoing a major rebuilding programme at the moment. We are moving to a new, faster server, with a new version of the content management system that has powered the site successfully since 2008. We will introduce a slightly different look and feel to that currently.
You may spot the phrase "Warning: Illegal string offset 'active' in .... " on parts of the website. Do not be alarmed! These are simply alerts but they do not constitute a danger to you or your computer. They are the result of a recent (current) server software upgrade that means there is a minor issue when listings are generated.
The website content (and, for the most part, its structure) will be unchanged and is indeed being expanded and improved. Search will be much more able to find the material you want in a site of almost 4,000 articles, and we will make other improvements such as content tagging.
We hope the work will be complete by December 2014.
