To Judith: so long, and thanks for all the cake!

This month, after more than ten years as the Society’s Finance Officer, we offer our heartfelt thanks and warmest wishes to Judith Bellis on her well-earned retirement. Judith has kept the Society’s financial recording on a steady track, her work charting the course of the Society’s development over a productive decade in its long history.

We are grateful to Judith for so much. She could be relied upon to bring a professional, calm and thoughtful approach to all her dealings with staff, trustees or the various external financial bodies and regulators. A familiar figure at Society AGMs, more than one member has commented how much they enjoyed Judith’s annual reports. Always clear and often inspiring – a refreshing take on what in other hands might have been a rather dry financial presentation.

And that’s the key.  Judith has always been clear that this was more than a job to her. Everyone around here knows how much she cares about people and nature.  She’s put a great deal into the Society, its people, and, as a keen explorer of Eryri herself, she’s actively supported our work for this place that we protect and nurture.

Judith has been very much a part of the team. Known also as a baker of amazing cakes for all occasions, she will be missed, though its likely she’ll be seen around Society activities, once she’s got her garden projects under control! So Judith – we’ll miss your knowledge, your hard work and your warmth, but we’ll hope to see you – and your cakes – at a Society event soon.
