Our courses are delivered by 25 Observers and we have six Committee Members, who run the charity behind the scenes. We are thankful to all of our 140 members and volunteers for their support throughout 2021.
We are currently planning a range of Member Events for 2022
, the first of which will be on 8th February 7pm at Windmill Farm (COVID-19 permitting) where our guest speaker will be Lincolnshire Police's Detective Chief Supt. Andy Cox, who is Head of Crime Intelligence and National Lead for fatal collision investigations.
