We send him our thanks for the great deal of time and effort he has put into keeping the Board in order over the last 5 years. Mr Stephens is succeeded by Dr Alan Hayes who has recently retired from ICI at Fernhurst, and we hope he enjoys his time as Chairman.

Mr Jim Oliver has found it necessary to stand down from the Executive Board but he will remain a valued Trustee of the Museum. Thanks go to Mr Oliver for his contributions.

Col Harrison has retired as a Trustee of the Museum. He has devoted an enormous amount of his time to the Museum for which we thank him.
1992/7Bulletin / July 1992VISITOR NUMBERS / As at the end of July we were 5,700 visitors behind, or approximately 5% down, on last year's running attendance. The major fall can be attributed to fewer school children due to a shorter summer term. The other major difference has been lower attendances at the Sheep Dog Trials and Heavy Horses. Despite the downward trend this year we are, in comparison with many other museums and similar attractions, performing very creditably in this current difficult economic climate.
