It was with great sadness that our society had to announce the passing of our President Lez Smith  on Saturday 11th October.

Lez was one of the first members at the inception of the society in May 1986.
He was elected to the committee in April 1991 and became Chairman in April 1994, a post he held until  April 2008 - a span of 14 years.

At his retirement as chairman in 2008 Lez was offered the position of Vice President previously held by our founder Phyl Webb.
In 2009 at the resignation of our then President, Father Peter Ball, Lez accepted the position of President - the post he held until his passing.

We will all miss his friendly face and banter  (Nice to see you, to see you nice) at meetings.

He was a true friend to our society.

The Funeral Service was  held at 10am
on Monday 20th October at the Eastbourne Crematorium.

Any donations to St.Wilfrid's Hospice
- to be sent or given on the day to the funeral directors,
Hailsham Funeral Services, 11 Station Road, Hailsham, East Sussex, BN27 2BE.
