Swansea & District JLD President, Rachel Tucker said:
“We would first like to thank everyone who came to our AGM. It was a lovely evening, and it is always great to see some new faces too! Thank you to Swansea University for allowing us a room to host the AGM too.
“I would like to thank Beth for all of her hard work and dedication to the SDLD over the last few years, it has been much appreciated. We wish Rachel all the best for this year and congratulations on your new role as it is thoroughly deserved and we wish you the very best year for your presidency.
The SDJLD President also shared a special thanks to Stacey Holmes, as Tucker added:
