10 March 2020 Stan and Gill Rogers£20 Two candidates for the Happy Valley Memorial Book

I think Alderman John Meach should be included, he held many posts of responsibility for Redhill and Reigate Harriers and was responsible for the disbursement of insurance damage money to smaller local clubs. Vandals set fire to the Battlebridge building. John unfortunately died a month ago.

The second candidate should be Colin Wilson, previously of Chaldon Way. Colin did stewarding for South London Harriers for 40 seasons and was a Gordon Pirie team stalwart. He was a much-loved member and died in June.
