Derek was a long-time member of the Leamington History Group who sadly passed away in July 2021. He was always keen to contribute to the activities of the Group and he was particularly noted for his collection of items relating to the history of the town and his huge collection of photographs. He was a good companion and friend to many.

On 24th January 2022 we celebrated Derek’s memory by enjoying some of his photographs on Zoom, with commentary by Barry Franklin. We were delighted that 43 devices were linked to the event with about 50 people joining in altogether. Here is a recording of what was an informal and very enjoyable occasion (about 50 minutes).
