There’s that line in Sgt Pepper’s where Paul sings that ‘we’re getting very near the end’. Well, I am getting very near now to my summer break. This morning I chaired the last Directors’ meeting before the end of August. So, as I get half way through my eleventh month in the job here’s a handy statistic; I have so far chaired 32 Directors’ meetings. I have also attended ten Bureau meetings. Impressed? Depressed? I think I’ll stop there.
