First of all we had a good board meeting in Wales last week where we approved a few things:
1. We welcomed a new director aboard, Adrian Richardson who is Principal of the Cothill Educational Trust. His interest is in educational outreach, linking the work done aboard the Beagle to schools. Adrian, his expertise and enthusiasm are most welcome.
2. I've been told to ask you to design a t-shirt for us, of which more later.
3. Science: I'll leave to Nunatak to update you, when she has a moment.
4. We have an interesting and significant new partner coming alongside, whose involvement could open our exploring, scientific and climate change work into interesting new directions. David Lort-Phillips and I are off to London meet Nunatak, him and (Darwin's Megatherium - no that's not his megatherium of natural selection) tomorrow.
