Alan Goodin 3 June 1928 – 3 April 2014

St John’s Chapel you would almost miss on the main street in Shavington but it surprises you inside with its light and airy feel and its balcony. It was there on Monday 14th April 2014 that a large congregation gathered to give thanks for the life of Alan Goodin, President of Crewe PS. A large attendance was fully expected for Alan…

Crewe PS v Nantwich CC 2014

Judge Diane Seddon LRPS did a great job for us and made it a very entertaining evening. Dolores Williams made the winning PDI entry and will…
