On Saturday 10th February last, solicitor and club member Barry Rafferty conducted a workshop on Wills in the club Juvenile room. This together with the follow-up consultation will result in the generation of a will. It was a very informative and successful session and was attended by about 35 people. This is indicative of the importance of making a will and we are very grateful to Barry for his very generous contribution to the club’s 50th anniversary celebration events.
