NEW YEAR MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAIRMAN
Well another year has flown by and sadly 2016 will be one that is remembered for the loss of so many celebrities around the world.
For the DASBF it has been a successful year in terms of membership and funds as we continue to help and support our members and provide useful benefits such as a retirement sum based on the amount of years of membership.
The Blue Light Services Carol Service held at Exeter Cathedral again this December presented DASBF with a cheque for £486.00 which is amazing.
As always I would like to thank all members for your continued support and I hope that most of you were able to enjoy Christmas with your families.
In 2017 we the committee will continue to strive for excellence in DASBF and to begin that process the lottery prize money has been increased for the New Year for those who subscribe.
It just remains for me to thank the committee members for all their commitment and hard work over the last year and I very much look forward to another successful year ahead.
Happy New Year to you and your families.
