At the annual lunch following the WFA's 11 November WFA Cenotaph and Guards Chapel events, Bruce Simpson announced that he was to stand down as Chairman of the WFA, effective from that day.
Bruce went on to say that many members knew that he had been recovering from personal difficulties but that he was well on the road to recovery. However, he said that after ten years as Chairman, he had given very careful consideration and felt it was time to stand down. He told those present that he felt that in those ten years the WFA was hugely improved and had many significant achievements. He said there were so many people that he wanted to thank but that in particular he praised the personal support he had received from Peter Simkins. Bruce offered the very best wishes to all on the Executive Committee and to the wider WFA membership. He added that he would remain a WFA member and would do anything to help the WFA.
Bruce was warmly thanked for all he had done over the past years.
