Congratulations for using ‘chair’

Dear Sir, — I would like to say thanks and well done to the Chronicle for taking the action to update its use of the word “chairman” to the more inclusive “chair” (last week’s Chronicle).
This follows the recent motion to update Congleton Town Council’s constitution to replace chairman with chair, a move that had my whole-hearted support. 
To have the knock-on effect that this would encourage others to think about the current practises and language, is a positive impact that I didn’t envisage would happen. Well done again. — Yours faithfully,

(COUN) PAUL DUFFY
Congleton Town Council.
