DERREK LANE – 90th Birthday

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Derrick  (90th)
Have a great day –
13th March 2019

Best wishes and congratulations from all of your friends in the Severn Spinners Flying Club.

“Derrick has contributed a great deal to the club over many years of membership and of course it’s great for us all to have a celebrity in our midst.

Derrick has appeared in a number of issues of RCM&E, showing off some of his superb creations and as the attached picture shows, also appeared with long time kindred spirit Mike, in the Kidderminster shuttle back in 2001”.
