Derek Stevens R.I.P.

Posted 5th July 2022

We are sad to announce that Derek Stevens has died at the age of 89.  He was based in Dorset and was one of the founders of the local meetings at Langton Matravers which many of us enjoyed.  He was at the last meeting in April this year chatting with us and still interested in all the exhibits.  Members may remember his detailed research on the ‘Little Sea’ at Studland reported in the Club Journal.  His funeral was on the 14th July at Lytchett Matravers Crematorium.
