    Why was it necessary to emphasise Sarah’s “relatively old age”?… and that of the outgoing director? especially up front.. Your short sighted ageist comments reinforces the attitude in the community

      Chris Boot here. I don’t personally mind my age being referred to, but I am miffed to be referred to as “retiring” when, far from it, I am moving on to a new chapter in my career!

      “Relatively young age” as compared to the out-going director. And as a point of reference, I’m older than Sarah.
