Find My Friend

The following requests have been made to help find a friend. If you can help then please contact the person who made the request direct by E-mail. It would be appreciated if those making requests would get in touch with the site administrator at if attempts to find a friend are successful. It is worth pointing out too that the Membership Secretary may be able to help those trying to contact a friend should a contact e-mail address listed on this page prove to be incorrect. Needless to say it would be helpful if seekers still trying to make contact could notify me of any change to their e-mail addresses.
