Peter Farrall - Director of Operations
at The British Society of Dowsers
We now have a new Director of Operations in the office, following the
retirement of John Moss. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce
Peter Farrall to you, and trust that you will join me in bidding him a
warm welcome into the Society. The Trustees are confident that he has
a wide range of skills that will be of great benefit to us.
Peter has a wide range of experience in the charity and not for profit
sector including Marketing and Communications Director for the Association
for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus; Head of Fundraising for the British
Horse Society and latterly as Chief Executive for a Benevolent Fund for
Nurses, The Cavell Nurses Trust.
Peter has a keen interest in the outdoors, is a geography and geology
graduate and is a Duke of Edinburgh expedition Assessor. He lives near
Stratford upon Avon, and is married with 2 daughters and 2 dogs.
Additionally, Helen Lamb is taking sabbatical leave from the Society effective
from this week. Helen has found this year to be particularly exhausting
and simply needs a break. We are hoping that she will elect to return
to us soon in some capacity, as I know she is much loved by us all.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported
us this year, whether by purchasing books and equipment from our shop,
attending our Conference, taking part in our course programme or by simply
being a member. Your contributions are enabling the important work of
the Society to continue in these economically difficult times. We really

We're on Facebook! (26July
The Society now has a page on Facebook. Social networking sites like
this are increasingly becoming a large part of peoples' lives, and we
hope that our presence on the largest of them will spread the word about
dowsing to a wider audience and help to gain us new members. If you're
already a Facebook member, you may find this a more convenient way to
keep up to date with what's happening at the BSD. If you're not a Facebook
member, you will need to first join it in order to see the page.
