A sad piece of news has once again affected the future of our modest little group of collectors. Peter Greening, our long-time member and last President, has had to stand down due to ill health. Personally, i cannot remember a time when Peter has not been at the helm of the Gabriel Society. In fact i took over from mhim some years ago as Editor of the Gabriel Magazine. He was a great help to me then, as he has to everyone who has known him over the years.

The good news is that the committee have unanimously agreed on his successor to the Presidency. We welcome David Hague, who has done sterling work with the Guild in the past. Although not always enjoying the best of health, he has agreed to step up and fill Peter’s shoes. He is a regular attendee at our London meeting but has not held office since early 2015 when Derek took over the Secretary’s job from him.

Len Yandell   –  Editor of the Gabriel Magazine.
