  1. It is with great sadness that I have to report the death of Graham after a battle with covid. Graham, although very much a Yorkshire man and proud, had been based in Norfolk for many years. Graham was an excellent modeler, especially scratch building structures. His layouts included Ollands End, Ashburton, Little Histon and Ebridge Mill, these and others were all displayed at local Exhibitions over the last thirty years. He was also very proud to have been invited to the Warley National Exhibition three times. These layouts also appeared in the Modelling Press over several years. I am pleased to say most of Grahams layouts live on as they were sold after their Exhibition life ended. In fact I purchased Ebridge Mill with other members of our group and it will be exhibited again. Graham sold my group Ebridge Mill after his wife was diagnosed with dementia about three years ago. Up until his death he has looked after her worsening condition. RIP Old Friend - we will all miss you.
