Hi there

Some of you may have noticed some changes with this website!

My name is Jim Waterfall and since the death of Dusty Miller I have taken over the duties of webmaster for the Glosters. I realise that I have a very hard act to follow after Dusty’s magnificent contributions to the Association and the Glosters website over the years and I hope that you will be as supportive of me as you were of Dusty.
