Also, a big congratulations is in order because today, Claire announced that she has been elected to the @bascnews council in the UK! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️From Claire— Thank you so much everyone! I am delighted to have now been elected into @bascnews Council (having previously been co-opted) and am really excited for what the next few years brings. I would especially like to thank everyone for their positivity and support during the election process. The private messages, the comments, the fb posts, the tweets, the “#teamsadler” campaign, the conversations as shows, fairs, bars etc the Instagram posts and stories - I have been blown away by the camaraderie and genuine, passionate and inclusive community that we have all built. The positivity and support pushed a small cloud of negativity into the shadows and I will be ever grateful for that. We need to remember that by coming together we achieve great things! I’m off to enjoy a nice Champs with my favourite person - and by person I mean Woody. 😂 have a lovely weekend everyone! Claire Xxx
