It is with great sadness that we have to record the death on Sunday of Ron Seaman. Ron was born in Bristol in 1933 and pursued a career as an accountant. He was one of the founder members of the Society and has been a loyal supporter for all that time. Recently he was the treasurer and was once the chair. Ron had made a number of presentations the most recent being on Pietro Mascagni in April. His unfailing courtesy and quiet wit will be greatly missed. Our thoughts are with Jan. Funeral was on 17th.
