My name is Alan Spooner and am a former camper and member of the London DA until we moved away to Hampshire back in 1989. We are still good friends with some of our old member friends and I have a bit of sad news - Arthur Hale who was the husband of Vera Hale passed away on Monday morning having reached the ripe old age of 92. Vera is OK and has sorted out, with the help of her family, Arthur's funeral arrangements and we have just spoken to her today.
Arthur was a member of the London DA from at least 1973 (that was when we first met him and Vera) and he was a past Chairman of the DA and Regional Rep and camped for many years with them and was well known across the Region for his humour and help he gave others. Arthur's funeral will be held at Crawley Crematorium on Tuesday 08 December at 10.45 hours.
If you could pass this on for me I would appreciate it .
Thank you once again
Alan Spooner (former London DA Chairman, Regional Chairman and RYLO etc., - not bragging just trying to shed some light on who I am !)
