David Reynolds

It is with much sorrow that we have to have to announce that David has passed away.
David has been a member of the club for almost 20 years, and in that time has contributed so much that has made our club what it is today. He will be sadly missed.
This picture reminds us of some of his many qualities. Cheerful & giving.
