Mr Rus­sell, a JP for 21 years and a past pres­i­dent of the lo­cal branch, was pre­sented with the chain of of­fice by out­go­ing pres­i­dent An­drea Haines at last week’s an­nual meet­ing in Hamil­ton.

In her re­port, Mrs Haines paid trib­ute to re­tir­ing reg­is­trar Huw Evans and to her vice-pres­i­dent David Cooke who had stepped into the reg­is­trar’s role. She also com­mended David Day for his con­tin­ued cam­paign to cre­ate JP ser­vice desks which are es­tab­lished to serve mem­bers of the pub­lic.
