A message from Jon Davies, Chief Executive of Wikimedia UK

This morning I have been in discussion with Ashley Van Haeften.

Ashley is keen that there should be no division in the WMUK community over his role as Chair, especially at a time when so many great things are being achieved. He has therefore resigned as Chair. A board meeting, already scheduled for this evening, will see the election of a new Chair.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ashley for his valuable contributions as our Chair and look forward to our continued working relationship.

Jon Davies, Chief Executive
