We are sad to share that Ron Bowyer one of our Vice Presidents passed away on Saturday aged 84. The society wishes to express our sympathy to his family, his knowledge and experience will be greatly missed.
He was a British Railways driver in the steam era and subsequently a volunteer NNR driver. He and his wife Roseanne were the pioneers almost single-handedly of the early NNR '40s' Weekend. Apart from the organisation of it they could be seen over the weekend each playing their musical organs. Ron took a turn as Society Chairman in the early 2000s.
