Ian Munro has posted this on the Lydiateworld facebook page:

Ian Munro -"I have heard that Mr Alec McGuffog who resurrected the Lydiate Youth Club , (Lambshear Lane)

 around 1966/1967 and ran it into the 70's, died on Wednesday.(14th Jan) I think he was 90. A great guy."

Ron Rigby

Very sad to hear the news of the death of Ron Rigby early this month.

Ron was a well known Lydiate farmer,also a local historian, church helper

and a public speaker. Much of my information about Lydiate came

from his articles in the St. Thomas monthly magazine.

A true gentleman who will be missed.

R.I.P. Ron

The family lived in Lydiate at one time
