    What a stint you accomplished Reg. Congratulations, the end of an era. I was chatting with Don Barnes recently and you’ll be glad to hear that he made me laugh like a drain. Impressively he hasn’t had a drink for two years (or a smoke either) so there is life after stepping down, and laughter. You have no doubt got plans for more breeding of daffodils and I hope you enjoy the leisure and the pleasure. I can (just) remember your first visit to the Northern Group meeting in the Leeds Paxton building at Headingley, when you gave us a talk about “Hot water treatment” using an old washer and a thermosta. It was a very impressive talk, I think in the eighties, when George Tarry was the chairman and Jan Dalton the sec. I remember George looking crossly at me when it came to the tea break because I didn’t go out with the ladies to make the tea. Things have changed a lot since those times, thank goodness. Congratulations to Jackie as well as Roger and Ian.
