I can’t believe how quickly our 20th anniversary year has flown by – it seems like only yesterday that we were preparing for the launch last January with so many past and present colleagues in Church Hall, Westminster! During the year we have raised over £5000 for our chosen anniversary charities from fundraising efforts in Swindon Office – and there will hopefully be more to come next year when, injuries permitting, I will finally get to do my half-marathon. It has to be said that trying to find the time to train has not been easy now my knee is better – there is so much going on!

We have achieved much as an organisation this year and now is a good time to reflect on what we have accomplished, just some of which are highlighted below:

In addition BBSRC has contributed to policy and scientific reviews. For example, members of BBSRC have given evidence to Select Committees and played a key role in the delivery of the Animal and Plant Health Review. BBSRC also carried out a stakeholder benchmarking exercise that has significantly contributed to our new corporate communication and engagement strategy.

I have really enjoyed my first year and a bit with BBSRC – but must confess I am looking forward to a bit of ‘down time’ over Christmas and New Year. Whatever you are doing over the holidays, I wish you a peaceful break and a happy New Year!
