Thank you Hugh for your report.

Our friend Alan Scarlett,s funeral took place on the 2nd September at Beckenham Crematorium and as President of the Club I was proud of the number of members who had made the effort to attend. Five of us were there, Jim Robinson, Ted, John and Hugh as well as myself, I think Brenda (his wife) was very touched by our presence.  Well done the Club. Derek.
