Vale Mark Windridge

Mark Windridge It is with great sadness that we recently learned of the sudden passing of Mark Windridge on the 24th June 2017. While he had suffered failing health in recent times he was just 62 when he passed away.

Mark Windridge was a Life Member who worked tirelessly for the club upon joining in 1992. He was our Membership Officer for many years and was always on hand to promote our club and ready to sign up new members at the early trade fairs. Mark's was also the friendly face that welcomed members to our Main meetings plus he led the "101 Technical Group" for many years and was a regular visitor to our Penrith Group.

Mark Windridge will be deeply missed. Rest in Peace.
