It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of our dear friend Russell who died in Torbay Hospital on the morning of 23rd October. Russell did all the manual work that enabled us to put up around 74 Blue Plaques. He was also a member of the committee for 15 years.
Rest in Peace.
Mr Vince Green
