I recieved an email from Kelvin Pinnock telling me the Sad news that his Dad, Roy Pinnock. had Passed away 17th February 2018. It was not unexpected but it is still sad news. I will miss our little chats over the phone when we put the world to rights. This was only a few short weeks after Roys Wife died. Rest in peace both of you.

The number to call is 02476 587 472 ask for Daniel and explain you are with the Black Ants. This should prevent the problems some people had getting through last year. If Daniel is not there he assures me that all at that number will be aware of the 51 Black ants reunion.


I have paid for the meeting room and for all day coffee for 30 people so that we can reserve the Venue. I used money from existing funds but we may need a few donations to pay the rest.
