News from the LDWA

New NEC General Secretary

Posted on 2022-03-11

Following the successful LDWA AGM in Leamington Spa on 6 March, we took the opportunity to say thanks and goodbye to Madeleine Watson from the NEC and to welcome Bill Milbourne.

Madeleine bows out as General Secretary which is a role she has held since 2017, following an earlier stint as the Events Secretary. Since joining the NEC in 2009, she has committed significant time and effort into the smooth running of the LDWA. Madeleine will still have a prominent part to play across the LDWA and will continue to be part of the Elephant, Bear and Bull 100 organising committee.

Bill has picked up the reins as General Secretary, supporting our Chair, Julie Cribb, and acting as a focal point for the Association's correspondence. Bill is based on Tyneside and is currently Secretary of Northumbria Group. He comes from a running background but has been a member of the LDWA for over 25 years. He has also been lead organiser for the Durham Dales Challenge and the Hadrian Hundred.
