pamjohnstonSadly I must conclude this month by paying tribute to Pam Johnston who passed away in January. Apart from all her other activities Pam was an active member of the History Society from its formation. You meet many people in you journey  thought life but very very few with Pam’s incredible generosity of spirit. Rest in Peace Pam, you certainly deserve to.
