It is with great sadness we have to advise members of the passing of Mary Skuce on Tuesday27th June. Mary and loving husband Gordon, (who passed away only a few weeks ago) were two of the longest standing members of the club and will be sadly missed by all who knew them. 

Our condolences go to their family. 

Dear Joyce ,

Thank you for your sympathy card and kind words following the passing of my wife Jean on May 12th. Her passing was totally unexpected and I had spoken to Jean in the nursing home the day before I travelled down to the factory rally.
I would also like to thank Glen for his help in leaving the camping area and the sympathy he showed to myself and son & daughter who had travelled down from the north East to inform me of Jean's passing .
I hope in the near future to thank you all personally .
Yours Sincerely 
David Angus.

Jim was a long standing member of ATOC and an active volunteer working with ACCEO as well as being Chairman of another Motorhome Club.

It is with great sadness that we have to report the passing of Elaine Balsom on Friday 26th May after a short illness.

Our condolances go to husband Dave and their family.
