Sad News - Bernard Taylor

We are very sorry to announce that our beloved Chairman, Bernard Taylor, died on 12th August after a short illness. Bernard did a huge amount of work for QLHS. He was the central pillar who organised and supported all our activities. His death was a profound shock, and it will take some time for the Committee to re-organise all the internal workings of the Society. Please bear with us at this very sad time. As soon as we have details of future activities, they will appear here.

Thank you and keep safe.
