Branch News

David Brown

Mid-Essex Branch are very sorry to have to report the death of our Secretary David Brown on 17 November after a short illness. David had been Secretary since 2009 and latterly Treasurer and had also been Chairman. It would be difficult to find a more pleasant, able and willing person who also produced some slide shows and did scanning for others. Such was his enthusiasm that during the long break in meetings due to COVID he produced a monthly online Newsletter. He will be sorely missed.
