Chairman of Welfare Fund Committee retires

Tuesday 22nd November marked the retirement of Past Master Roger Merton as Chairman of the Welfare Fund Committee, after over 50 years service on the committee. Luckily for the committee, Roger has agreed to become Vice-Chair. The organisation which began in the 1860's provides support for people who have worked in the tobacco industry but have fallen on hard times. The new Chairman is the Third Warden, Tony Scanlan.
