Link-Up started in 1984 and was successfully Chaired for some 15 years by John Kitson MBE. For many of those years John was ably assisted by his wife Eileen, in the role of Secretary.

Both John and Eileen have, at one time or another taken on all the various posts of the committee to ensure the continuous production of this valuable talking newspaper.

At the beginning of 2014 John and Eileen decided that it was time to step back and hand over to others.

At the Annual General Meeting, held at Wereham House on 17 April 2014, John and Eileen stepped down and a new comittee was elected. Many of this new committee had held posts on the old committee.
