Ashley Van Haeften steps down from Wikimedia UK board

Wikimedia UK announces that Ashley Van Haeften (User:Fae) has decided to stand down as a trustee of the charity with immediate effect.

Fae has made significant contributions to the Wikimedia movement and our charity since he was first elected to the board in April 2011, serving as our Chair from April 2012 to August 2012.

Wikimedia UK extends its thanks and appreciation to Fae for all of the time, effort and expertise he has contributed to the charity over the past two years. We hope that he will continue to actively participate in the activity of the chapter as a member and we wish him well for the future.

The board will discuss co-opting a replacement trustee and an announcement will follow in due course.
