A warm welcome to WinchesterOn 1 Nov 2002 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article The sun shines on the righteous, or so they say, and shine it did as morethan 100 delegates from all over the country, arrived in Winchester for the27th National Safety Symposium (NSS). Entitled Practicalities of safety, the three-day event took place at KingAlfred’s College, Winchester on 2-4 September. The college is named after one of Winchester’s most famous residents andduring his keynote speech, the Right Worshipful the Mayor of Winchester,Councillor John Steel, made several references to the pride his city has in itshistorical past, while noting that the NSS itself has a history to be proud of.This year’s symposium was particularly special for Rhona Wells as it was herlast as chair of the Public Services Group before being succeeded by JohnHolden, the current chair of the NSS working party. Rhona made specialreference to this in her speech at the symposium dinner where the guests ofhonour included the IOSH president elect, Eleanor Lawson, and the college’svice-principal, Tommy Geddes. The Zurich Municipal Safety Awards were also presented at the dinner andpresentations were made to representatives of Caerphilly County BoroughCouncil, Warrington Borough Council, Renfrewshire Council and QLM. Let’s hope that the spirit of Winchester can be retained for next year whenthe NSS travels up to the University of York, on 1-3 September. Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos.
