Jonah and company welcomed a new plaque to The Oak yesterday evening.

Nigel Fox (Foxy), one of our most loved comrades, passed away in November 2012 but yesterday his family and the Cropredy crew gathered in celebration to give him pride of place between Rob Braviner and Jonah himself.

That pair alway did need keeping apart - and Foxy's just the chap for the job!!
