National Office Update

National Office Update 

Dear RDA UK staff and volunteers,

I’m sorry to share the sad news that Pat Burgess, Founder of Wilton RDA, has sadly passed away. Pat was a much-loved figure throughout RDA, especially of course at her group and in the region. Described as a ‘powerhouse’ of a person, Pat said she ran Wilton on ‘love, joy and enthusiasm’. We could all do with a bit more of that at the moment, and Pat will be sadly missed.

Regional Chairs in Scotland have been updated by us today following the Scottish First Minister’s announcement that will bring a number of areas into Level 4 from this Friday, 20 November at 6pm.

New look Operations Team at National Office

As you will have seen from the staff phone list sent out on 14 October (you’ll remember that, it was the email that went on for ages), there have been changes to the structure of the Operations team at National Office. A presentation explaining the changes was given to the recent Operations Planning Committee and at the Regional Chairs meeting, and you can find a copy of this here:www.myrda.org.uk/new-look-operations-team-at-national-office-changes-explained/


Best wishes and stay safe,
