Last night at our AGM outgoing President David Rudkin handed over the role to Trevor Davies. David was made a life member and thanked by our Chairman Mike Kallaway, he will remain in touch with the society despite moving to Southampton for health reasons. David was Curator and Director at Fishbourne Roman Palace for over 20 years and directed excavations there and in the local area, his wise counsel and dry wit will be missed at our meetings.
