Nigel becomes a 'Saint"

JULY

This month saw Secretary Nigel Riches being unknowingly recognised as a 'Saint' - fallen or otherwise. 

AUGUST

Members gather to mourn the passing of Fred Effigy, who ducked out at the Cedar School Fair..

Fred, along with common sense, will be sadly missed.

Farewell poor Fred, I knew him well.
