Governance. The new arrangements for managing TCC-UK have now been put in place. Please read the important letter enclosed with this mailing from Allen Packwood, who has been appointed Executive Director of the society. Allen will be well known to many members, having been Director of the Churchill Archives Centre at Churchill College, Cambridge for several years (a post which he continues simultaneously to occupy).

Board of Trustees. Member Stephen Rubin OBE has been appointed a Trustee.

Life Peerages. Many congratulations to member Michael Dobbs, who has been honoured with a life peerage: he is now Lord Dobbs. Congratulations also to Gordon Wasserman, a regular guest at TCC-UK events, who has been similarly honoured.

WSC Birthday Reception. Many members will know that the annual Birthday reception, scheduled for 1st December 2010, had to be postponed at the last moment due to severe snow and ice. Please see the accompanying notice and application form with the new arrangements for Tuesday 8th February 2011. Instead of meeting at the Marriott, Grosvenor Square, the venue is St Stephen’s Club, 34 Queen Anne’s Gate [not No. 38, as earlier stated elsewhere], which is close to St James’s Park tube station. As arranged for the December date, the speaker will be Robert Hardy; Sir Martin Gilbert will also speak.
