APAGB Award for John Woodhead

By now most of you will know that the surprise event of the evening [Club’s annual fun night] was the the presentation of an APAGB Award to John Woodhead for meritorious service  over many years – 59 years as an officer of this Club. We were unable to publicise this beforehand as the PAGB require that the recipient is unaware of their nomination etc.

We were very pleased that the only other (known) surviving founder member of the Club, Prof Norman Riley, kindly agreed to come up from East Anglia for the evening which was also attended by the YPU President Elect, Andrew Pell CPAGB. (Photos by Alan Greenwood attached)

After the presentation of the certificate and badge by Andrew Pell there was the usual chaotic ‘competition’ followed by drinks and a buffet. If you weren’t there you missed a good evening!
