Its been a bit quiet on the IWW Dumfries front as late, partly as a result of the changeover in the branch. John B. has earnt a well deserved break as Branch Chair — though continues as a delegate — and Ruth H. has been elected in his place. Many congratulations to Ruth. The next branch meeting (GMB) will be in the next few weeks.
