In the years Mr Kelly has been with the National Office, he has greatly raised the profile and image of the Society with his enthusiasm and energy. The National President Mr Murray MacCormick expressed his and the Society’s gratitude for Mr Kelly’s long term and valuable contribution. “He will be sadly missed and we wish him well with his endeavours.”
