The originator of this web site, Colin Jackson the son of committee member Bob, has a book out on Amazon which would make an ideal ’stocking filler’ if you are an animal lover and like a laugh. Damp Dogs and Rabbit Wee. He goes by the author name of Cee Tee Jackson.
It is with great regret that we have to advise that our former treasurer David Wilson [DAG] has passed away. David assiduously kept our accounts for many years and was a great asset to the Association.
We also lost our former membership secretary Edith McWatt in May this year. Edith was a longstanding committee member who kept our records in an exemplary manner up to where we had to stop this because of the Data Protection Act.
I would like to draw your attention to a new blog created by the originator of this web site, Colin Jackson. It will have light hearted recollections from around the world as to what it was like growing up / living through the late ’60s /’70s. It is something we will all have, mostly, fond memories of. The music, the films and tv shows and how we enjoyed ourselves. Have a look. I don’t think you will be disappointed.
There is also a Facebook group – Once Upon a Time in the 70s – which you may wish to join.
It is with great regret that I have to advise that our Treasurer, Jim Carson, passed away on 26th August after a short illness.
