It is now 20 years since Friends of TREAD was registered as a charity and our address has only changed once. David Owen, one of the original founders of the charity has acted as Chair for 20 years and this year handed over the reins to Jerry Dart.
Jerry lives in Bristol so we decided it would be more practical for the smooth running of the charity to move our registered address from Hastings to Bristol. Jerry is a member of B & A church Bishopston, Bristol (formerly St Michael & All Angels Church) and over the years Friends of TREAD has received much support from its church members. So we were delighted when the clergy of B & A offered to allow Friends of TREAD to make use of their premises and register our postal address there.
All the trustees of FOT have served the charity for many years and so several are now stepping down and have been replaced by a new team. A letter has been sent to all supporters of FOT to inform them of the changes.
