Sorry to hear this Dave. Des was indeed very crucial to the club and he turns up in a lot of the club documentation. If I remember, he was on the committee for a number of years, long before my time.

I know he hasn’t been in the best of health for the last few years, but I’m sure he very much appreciated you bringing him when he was able.

Please do pass on our respects and thanks for everything he did for the club.

Very sad news. Des was the Course Tutor for the C&G RAE Course at Wolverton College when I was studying for the RAE.

RIP Des.
