Paul Webb

 It is with deep sadness I have to inform the club that Paul Webb passed away on Saturday Evening 14/12/2015 at Cransley Hospice. Paul had been suffering with cancer of the liver for a short time before his passing and hence his resignation from the committee recently. Paul was a life long modelling enthusiast and a founder member of our club. He had served numerous times on the committee in addition to spending many hours working on the clubs behalf over the years.
Paul had asked his son to dispose of his model collection and requested that no one contacts the family with this regard.
Our thoughts are with his widow, familly and close friends who have lost a lovely man.
Details of the funeral arragements will be published as they become available.
