Dear All,

It is with great sadness that earlier today the committee were informed of the passing of Roger Price, a dear friend to many and lifelong modeller.
Roger passed away peacefully at home yesterday with his family by his side.
Roger was a long standing member of the club who held numerous positions on the committee over several decades.
He served as Chairman in his most recent role from 2013 until his resignation in 2021 due to ill health.
His wisdom and advice to many of us over the years was very much appreciated and his tales from his time in the police always kept us entertained.

Sadly we also inform you of the passing of Eric Loakes yesterday. Eric was a member for many years until he decided to hang up his transmitter a couple of years ago. He thoroughly enjoyed his flying and regularly flew on Tuesdays with his pals. Eric was always a friendly and welcoming face at monthly meetings. 
We send our condolences to Roger and Eric's family and friends at this sad time. They were both stalwarts of the club and will be missed by all.
We'll keep you updated with details of funeral arrangements once we have them.

Regards
Chris B
