In Memory of Herbie Snaith

For many years the Heart and Soul of Camperdown Club.
We were all accustomed to meeting Herbie at some venue in the village whether it was at Burradon Club, Kirkdale Court or on the Front Street and despite being 83 years of age he was always fit and active. As a consequence, Herbie’s passing in December was a huge shock and loss for his family and many friends in the village
