Derek Brumhead

We are sad to report the death of Derek Brumhead on 21st February.

Derek was an early member of New Mills and District u3a. He served on the committee for several years and more than once. He was the Geology Group leader for many years imparting his extensive knowledge of geology to the group members. Derek willingly gave several talks at our monthly meetings about local history and about geology.
