David Huntingford died peacefully at home with his family on 1 December after a few weeks in hospital.
He was a very active early member of the club, and held the position of Club Secretary for many years before becoming Vice Chairman. He took over as Chairman for 2 years when Phil Peddy retired in 2008.
David did a great deal for the club especially with regard to our sound system, which he designed and managed for many years. He was always willing to share his camera knowledge and to help new members. In 2007 he was instrumental in obtaining a lottery grant for the club to buy our first computer and projector. Up until then we had been producing colour slides for some competitions.
