The time has finally come to say goodbye to our beloved Daniel Cox. He is leaving us for pastures new on Friday 15th January. He is an inspiration to work with and everyone within the CDE will miss his charm, his jokes, his beard and his calming nature.

Dan, we all wish you every success in your new job. You have been a key team member of the CDE and have worked tirelessly to ensure the project is a success. You have been a great support for the CDE RE’s and a fount of knowledge for everyone.

Good luck and best wishes from everyone at the CDE.
