Helen Kay- Chief Executive
Hello everyone! My name is Helen and I am so excited to be your new Chief Executive. It was very sad to say goodbye to Liza but I know she will keep in touch. There are lots of things I am looking forward to in my new role. Meeting all of you is definitely top of the list. Until then, I thought you might like to hear a little bit about me
Rugby is my favourite sport and I play twice a week in a Mixed Ability Rugby Team. I'm married to Damien and we have two lovely children, Emily and Dylan. We also own a cheeky sausage dog called Hudson. He barks a lot, eats a lot and loves a tummy tickle!
