Sad News

It is with heavy heart that the committee has to inform the members of the passing away of Jeff Hedley.  Jeff was a founder member of the club and ex committee man who was both generous and approachable.  He put a lot of time and effort into ensuring the club took the right path and we are eternally grateful for his efforts. He will be sadly missed
