I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who attended this year's annual dinner on 6th March at Worthing Dome. It was an absolute honour to be President for such a momentous occasion as we celebrated 100 years as a society.

I would like to say a huge thank you to the top table guests, it was a delight to be able to share the evening with them. Also a very special thank you to my guest speakers Jane Dahill and John Bunker to who I am so grateful for their speeches and their continued support.

Since the dinner we have all had to adjust to a new way of life and working due to Covid-19. This has had a huge impact on our personal lives and the way we have been able to conduct our business. I hope that people have been able to adapt. We as a society are here to support you if needed, so please do not hesitate to get in touch. There is also information of support available under the ‘Support for Lawyers’ section of the website.

The committee has been meeting since lockdown via Zoom in order to keep things up and running. Sadly we are of course restricted at the moment in our ability to arrange any social events and educational lectures given no available venues and social distancing measures. We do however have lots of ideas for the future once restrictions are relaxed.

I wish all the very best to our members and please do get in touch if you have any queries, comments or suggestions for the committee.
