Happy New Year!
There was an important omission in my previous post. Ailsa Rutter, director of Fresh (formerly Smoke Free North East), was awarded an OBE "for services to Tobacco Control".
So this is where we are.
The most recent directors of Smoke Free South West, Tobacco Free Futures (formerly Smoke Free North West) and Smoke Free North East have all been awarded an OBE or MBE yet the chief executive of ASH (appointed in 2003) and the CEO of ASH Scotland (appointed in 2008) continue to be overlooked.
Why? It's a mystery.
Really humbled today. And so proud of everyone's efforts to #makesmokinghistory. Thank you. Amazing leadership from so many partners— Ailsa Rutter (@AilsaRutter) December 31, 2016
