Carol is a long serving member of staff in Scotland and well known to many members, either over the phone or from fairs and events. As with all members of a small team her many talents cover a wide range of areas. Her efficiency at fairs is well respected, as is the way that almost single-handedly she runs the Sealed Bid Auction for the whole of the UK. The efficient administration of the Scottish office and coordination of all of our activities is due to Carol.
