June 18th 2013  Past President Alex Helm

Sadly on 18th June 2013 after a long illness, Past President Alex Helm died.
Our sincere sympathies go to his wife Cathie and the family.

Past President Alex was club Treasurer from 2001-2010. An ex-stockbroker he continued to work until his health deteriorated. A keen member of our 1874 Investment Club with interests in football, social dominoes, snooker ( ex-tournament player ) and John Wayne videos ! Politics - he was a self confessed chauvinistic conservative!

Alex was a keen Friday and Monday night visitor to our club and he will be sadly missed.
