Re: Derek Bowdery

Derek was someone who always supported events and was always cheerful and smiling. I first met him at the Judges Course in the 1980's and later remember him coming to Sheffield Branch with Karen to give a talk. He and Karen came to us before the meeting for a meal and we had a lovely time together. ...
