We are pleased to announce the appointment of

our new EBED Chairman Andy Margetts.

trustee of EBED since July 2018 and became Vice-

charity since its inception, and was instrumental

in establishing EBED as an independent

organisation.

Two other trustees are also now retiring: Gary

Ames, who has played a leading role in shaping

EBED's education activities since it was founded

and who, we are pleased to say, will continue to be

involved as one of our Teacher Educators; and

David Waxman who has been a trustee for the past
