As many of you may know Richard Nurick, past chairman and wine expert extraordinaire stepped down from the Pangbourne Twinning committee this year after many years of sterling service to the association. Yesterday the present committee arranged a small but warm-hearted thank you ceremony at his house. He was presented with a beautiful book full of photographs of some of our recent events and activities and many charming pictures of the Pangbourne/Houdan exchange visits that he and his wife Rosie were always such an integral part of over the years. This came as a big surprise to Richard as Rosie had kept him in the dark, but I think he was very pleased and touched.
We wish him all the best and we hope that he will spend many hours with the book recalling fond memories and reliving some fantastic moments as part of the association.
Thank you to Richard and Rosie from all of us.
