The loss of another stalwart of the Association has been reported - Harry Bentham from Chorley who has been a member of No. 2 Area since 1972 and was an active conductor well into his senior years, when many younger conductors would have retired.
From everyone connected to the Association we send out condolences to Harry's family. Harry's funeral will take place at the Parish Church Croston, Croston, near Southport - at 12.30pm, Friday 20 April 2012.
