There are changes at the top for angling charity Get Hooked on Fishing (GHoF) with the retirement of its long-standing chair of trustees.
His Honour John Milford QC, a lifelong keen angler, has been a trustee since 2004. He will be replaced (as acting chair) by Paul Devlin, managing director and owner of Glasgow Angling Centre and Chapman‘s Angling.
John was saddened to be stepping down as chair but said: “I have so many happy memories of working with GHoF and have seen first-hand the excellent work that the charity does.”
Sarah Collins, GHoF’s chief executive officer, added: “John has been an extremely hard working, loyal and supportive trustee. He has seen the charity go from strength to strength.”
