A NEW chair and deputy chair have been appointed for the Regal Tenbury Trust, the volunteer-led organisation which has run the Regal Tenbury for the last two year.

Peter Drew has moved from deputy to chairman and Jane Allen, who joined the organisation as a trustee, is now deputy chairman.

Both have a background in business management and will ensure the Regal continues to trade on a firm commercial base while striving to provide a quality community facility for arts and entertainment for Tenbury and the district.

Former chairman Chris Davis remains as a trustee.

Mr Drew said: "We are all immensely grateful to Chris for his leadership since the trust was formed.

"His in depth industry knowledge and his contacts have been invaluable."
