Our portrait evening, 3rd April 2014 was an enjoyable event but overshadowed by the sad news that our President and longest standing member Alan Goodin had died.

Alan was a true gentleman. He was a popular and highly respected member who served on our committee for many years and his experience and wisdom contributed enormously in helping to run our affairs. He always had the clubs’ interests in mind, welcoming new members and keeping a steady hand on the tiller. He was also a founder member of the South East Cheshire Ornithological Society and they too will be very sorry to hear the news.
