QPD – KENNELMAID’S BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE
This was opened in 2008 and has been displayed at three Reunions. It is a tribute to ‘Absent Friends’ with some wonderful photographs which were kindly provided by friends and family members. If you have a photograph of anyone who has passed then please get in touch with Kevin. The book will be on display at the Reunion and will be housed in a quiet, reflective place for all to see.
