The society are pleased to announce that it was recently bequeathed £500 in the will of Eileen and John Simonds. The committee wanted the money to be used for something specific rather than just being absorbed into society funds. To this aim we have arranged for the gates at the entrance of Quinton Burial Ground to be replaced. Below is a photo of the new gates that we believe are a fitting tribute to Eileen and John's memory.

Meetings are held at Quinton Methodist Church Hall, Ridgeway Avenue, Halesowen, West Midlands, B62 9AU.

See the diary for details. It's just down the road from our old venue, and there's plenty of free parking.
