At the annual skittles night and presentation evening in December, Colin Maxfield, our hard working secretary, arranged a surprise presentation to George Kirkham who celebrates 70 years in the S.M.B & E.C.
George was honoured by a plaque & certificate commemorating his 70 years as President & Chairman, his wife Joan was also presented with a bunch of flowers.
What a fantastic milestone, congratulations & thank you from us all.
George was also a bit of a celebrity on Wiltshire Radio this year as he took part in an interview showing us his model boats.
