Welcome to the Summer SOFHT Focus. Well the weather is trying …

What a great afternoon / evening we had at the beautiful Coombe Abbey, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. It was good to see so many old and new (members). The weather is at least warming up, however the impact of so much rain is already placing challenges on harvests and supply chains.

I hope you enjoy the articles in this edition where we have focused on ethical practices. My thanks to the authors Professor Chris Hodges, Ruth Steinholt and David Meller for their inciteful articles. We have also an interesting and informative article from Andy Johnson on CE markings on PPE and the common misconceptions around their safety. Once again, thanks go to Rick for supporting me and pulling together these articles. Please do contact us if you have something you’d like to publish in the Focus or to suggest topics you would like to see.

We are delighted to welcome our new SOFHT board members Jonathan France, Tracey Colbert, Fiona Sutherland and Jamie Weall and say a fond farewell to John Rigarlsford and Nagaraju Sayamoni.

I wish you all a Happy Holidays.

Dianne Waite,
Editor SOFHT Focus
