Welcome to Old Cicestrians.com
from Doug Murgatroyd
Those of you that have logged into this site recently may be aware that our President, John Richards passed away suddenly on 3rd August 2012. John was a contemporary of mine at school and was always, even back then, the positive, enthusiastic personality that I became reacquainted with a year or so after he joined the CHALOBS committee.
As you know, it was he that single handledly promulgated and managed the setting up of this website. At his last Committee meeting in July, in a discussion about the structure of next year's committee setup, he persuaded me to take on the role of Website Editor. It was a job I had been reluctant to take on, given my total lack of expertise in the area of websites, but one, he assured me in his usual enthusiastic way, that was little different from the Newsletter Editor's role I had relinqished in 2010. It is fortuitous, therefore, that he sent me the details of how to edit this website just one day before he passed away. We shall miss you, John. I hope that I can match your expectations of me in the role with the same positive attitude that you always displayed.
Steve King has now assumed the position of President and on behalf of you all, I'm sure you would want me to wish him well in the role in the next year or so.
I have added a number of new photos in Galleries and a number of articles in the Articles page. You can always email me with articles of your own at firstname.lastname@example.org in an attachment or send comments direct to me and other members via the Forum page on this site.
