As most of you know I am unfortunately leaving the Region. I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of R1 and will miss you all greatly. Scotland has been my home for the last 6 years and I've never felt more at home even though I have a different access. I have loved watching R1 grow form strength to strength under the guidance of Sam, Ted and now Chris. I feel honoured to have known you all and feel I have made true friends. I thank you all and hope that the region goes from strength to strength. I personally will try and support you all and will no doubt meet you all in a field somewhere. Whether this be at a rally somewhere or in a field in the middle of some midge ridden hell hole somewhere I will try and be there. Thank you all.
