New Appointments

We are very pleased to announce the appointment of John Broadbent as Vice Chair and Barry Starkie as Vice Treasurer. As you will read on the next page John will be standing at the 2013 AGM for the post of Chairman. John's appointment, as VC, means he can shadow Clarke for the rest of this year to ensure a smooth handover. Barry Starkie will be a familiar name to some of you as he held the position of Treasurer prior to 2006.

Sad News

It is with great sadness that we report the sudden death of Geoff Errington, who died in May at the age of 62. Geoff did a great deal of work for the Society both at Taylor House, looking after our website and in the field as Inspector for Belper.  David Bratt and Clarke Rogerson attended his funeral which was held in York. Geoff was a great team worker and will be missed by all the volunteers at Taylor House.


Thanks to volunteer Mike Barnes this edition of Signpost will be offered in a greater range of formats. For many years a paper copy was the only option that the Society offered. Last year we started to offer an electronic version which allowed people to download either a full colour or a print friendly black and white version. This addition sees the introduction of a web based version which is aimed at attracting members away from the paper copy. If you are reading a paper copy and have access to the Internet the new version can be found at:

In the near future we hope to offer a quick way to sign up for the electronic newsletter, in the mean time if you would like to save the Society money please contact us requesting the eNewsletter rather than the paper version.
