Group History

The history of the Group is still being researched and written.

I know there are a number of people who were either helpers or Leaders, who’s names are not shown because I am unsure of the exact dates of their involvement. Please don’t be offended if you are one of those people or one of their relatives, but please do let me know.

I am now trying to include people’s personal stories and memories from their time with the Group. If you would like to tell me your story, no matter how long you were us or when it was, please get in touch.
