It is with much sadness that I’ve been asked to let our members and followers know that our wonderful Chairman, Jim Nuttall, passed away peacefully this morning, 12 July. Jim did so much for our group and indeed, the Broughton community as a whole. His devotion was evident even towards the end of his illness, as he continued to liaise with us on group matters behind the scenes right to the end. He will be truly missed by us all. On behalf of Broughton District History Group and our community, we send our deepest condolences to his wife Val and her family at this very sad time. Cari Pugh ~ on behalf of the BDHG Committee.
