29 JANUARY 2021: Bill Huyton R.I.P.

It is with enormous sadness that we report the death of Bill Huyton, our Chairman Emeritus, aged 73. A stalwart member of our Society for twenty years, Bill soon became part of our Committee and had the notable distinction of being our longest-serving Chairman to date. He will be missed by all who knew him.

For more, see the Bill Huyton obituary contributed by ODFHS committee members and some pictures in the Gallery page.
