Hastings Trust awards Michael Foster MP

On Tuesday evening I had the honour of presenting Michael Jabez Foster MP with an award for commitment to the local community on behalf of the Development Trusts Association. On only my seventh day in post as the new chief officer at the Trust I felt privileged, but somewhat over-awed, by the occasion. Michael had been nominated for the award by the outgoing Executive Director, Christine Goldschmidt, commending Michael as a key supporter of the work of the Trust and saying that he deserves 'a pat on the back and big hug' for his tireless support of the communities within Hastings and St Leonards. We totally agree with Christine. Michael also took the time to give a private tour of the Houses to myself, my colleague David Jeapes (Skills2Build Manager) and DTA Board member Carolyn Lambert.
