Loss of our friend Roger

I expect that by now most of you would have heard of the death of our friend and member Roger Akerman. His very quick, dark humour will be missed. He had a way of saying things that were at the same time dark but funny. He had a way of bringing you down to earth by cutting across your argument but he would not just point out where you were wrong but also come up with an alternative.

He was someone who cared about our shed, our members and what our shed stood for. He worked hard behind the scenes with his wide range of contacts and worked hard to bring in new members for the shed. His common sense, advice and enthusiasm will be missed by us all.  

Roger was a founder member of ShedQuarters and served as Treasurer for the first two years, until his health started getting the better of him. He helped cook our food and sometimes stepped in to cook the whole meal when Les was away.

His funeral service was held on Monday 18th March, 2:00pm in Saron Chapel Nantyffyllon. Followed by a service at Coity Crematorium, Bridgend, at 3:15pm. The reception was held at the Harlequins Club, Maesteg.   


Well.... After Colin had tripped the fuses in the main room so there were no lights and, more importantly, no electricity for our tea urn, he decides to do a talk on fly fishing. What could possibly go wrong?

Everything was hunky dory until Wayne came into the mix, we all know what Wayne is like, apart from being grumpy and cantankerous, he has no idea about fly fishing or safety. Colin showed him the technique a couple of times and was walking out of the way when Wayne decided to try out his new found skill, and hooked Colin fair and square.

Colin wriggled and struggled, much to our amusement, but Wayne was too strong for him and he landed a fine catch.

Next week Colin is giving a talk on chain saws, I don't think I will attend that one :-)
