Blast from the Past

A very young Dec standing on the wall with family friend Andy Mangan.

Wasn't he a lovely curly headed blond boy? Whatever happened???



Con who is a member of The Rotary Club of Elland, presented a cheque to Linda Brown, head of St Patrick's School in Elland on behalf of the club. This will enable her to purchase a defibrillator for use, not only in the school, but by people in the surrounding area. A further 500 was granted by Calderdale Council towards the cost. The Defibrillator will be placed in a vandal proof box on the outside wall of the school.
