A DARTMOUTH charity has said a fond farewell to Britannia Royal Naval College Commodore Simon Williams as he is moving to London following a promotion.
Dartmouth Caring said goodbye to Simon Williams and his wife Charlie during a special event.
During Simon's tenure as Commodore, the BRNC supported Dartmouth Caring in many ways, including a recent initiative that saw willing groups of officer cadets helping the charity's clients in a variety of ways, including handiwork around the home to clearing a messy garden. The cadets were a credit to the Royal Navy, and even bought flowers for the clients they were helping.
The farewell event was organised by Dartmouth Caring chairman Dee Nutt who paid for a special goodbye for Charlie at Browns Hotel and presented her with a beautiful bunch of flowers to say thanks for all their support.
She said: "Simon and Charlie have in their posting to BRNC been great supporters of Dartmouth Caring.
"Simon as Commodore has supported the charity from a professional perspective and privately Charlie has joined Dartmouth Caring's ladies lunch, a group that meet regularly at Browns.
"We wish them luck and we congratulate on Simon's new posting in London, he thoroughly deserves his promotion and wish them luck."
