February 27th saw Cannock group of the British National Party hold their second meeting of the year, this meeting started with long standing Organiser Bill Vaughan giving his reason for standing down as organiser due to ill health.
Bill has been a very hardworking organiser who started Cannock group from scratch with the help of Cannock's Fundholder Terry Majorowicz and have built it up to what it is today, a very strong and active group that is an asset to the West Midlands region. Bill was then presented with a framed certificate of appreciation for all his hard work, this was presented by me.
