Sadly this was one of the last occasions that Angela and Graham
could attend before they move to pasture's new on the mainland.
many tributes were made to them, and the "odd" gift presented
Picture: Lee Day
Ken gave Graham a model of a car and caravan to keep in his office
as a reminder of the happy times Angela and he had experienced
with the island Centre.

Grahams love of black pudding for breakfast is well known amongst Centre Members,
so Mac gave him an industrial size one, it might last him until he goes to the mainland ?
Picture: Lee Day
In a highly charged emotional atmosphere, both for Angela and Graham and indeed
all Centre Members present, Graham explained the reasoning behind having to leave
the island, including new challenges job wise, and family matters.
Graham went on to say how Members had made them so welcome
and how much they had enjoyed their time with the Centre.
Both Angela and Graham could have not have been under any miss apprehension
as to how much Members valued their time with us, and how much affection and
regard was held for them.
19 vans were at the Thorncross Rally, plus many other Members came by car not wanting to
miss this important but tinged with sadness occasion
We all wished Angela and Graham every happiness in their new venture.

Graham is in party mode ?
