Taking over the reins from Robert Drewett, Catherine Look will be working closely with the Bath & West Team and its wider stakeholder group as the Society moves forwards after the pandemic.
After a successful nine and a half years as Chairman, Robert Drewett commented “It has been a tremendous privilege to be at the centre of an organisation as special as the Royal Bath & West for so long. Now that we are emerging from the challenges of Covid, and with a bright future ahead of the Society, I am delighted to be handing over leadership of the Society to Catherine. Thank you to everyone who has supported me over the years. I wish the Royal Bath & West of England Society continued good health and prosperity.” Mr Drewett, who started stewarding in 1977, and who was appointed a Vice President of the Society at its recent AGM, will continue to be involved with the Society, joining its Charity Committee and continuing to represent the Society on outside bodies such as the Royal Agricultural Society of the Commonwealth.
Catherine has been involved with the Royal Bath & West Society for a number of years, having joined the Board of Trustees in 2018. Alongside her involvement in the Royal Bath & West, Catherine is the Managing Director of her family business, which manages and develops park home estates and holiday parks across Somerset, Devon and Cornwall.
Catherine commented “I am absolutely honoured to have been elected as Chairman of the Society. I’m very much looking forward to working with our team and wider stakeholder groups as the Society moves forwards, seeks new opportunities and develops our charitable objectives.”
