After many years of unstintingly selfless service, the Newbury Old Blues Committee put out a request for assistance, and I was foolish enough to stick my head above the parapet. Donald Willis, the indomitable President promptly declared me the new Chairman, and at the delayed Founders Day Dinner at Newbury Rugby Club (whose previous players are also confusingly called "Old Blues) I grabbed as many email addresses as I could, to try to get some help with the task. Current I am emailing 4 or 5 stalwarts for ideas about this years dinner, and getting some up to date names and addresses, and trying to contact young old blues. So if there are any "West's Gift", or other Old Blues in the Newbury, Reading, Andover, Malborough area, oor you have contacts for them, please pm me.

I hope to use this and other boards to keep it going, growing and helpful
