John Graham – RIP

Posted by Admin on 26th November 2013

Admin.

It is with much sadness that I post this announcement. I was told a short while ago that John Graham (aka Araucaria/Cinephile) died during the early hours of this morning. He was peaceful and among friends.

Sloggers and Betters – Sheffield – a message from John Henderson

Posted by Admin on 9th August 2013

Admin.

I’d like to invite you all to a party that I’m organising at the Sheffield Tap on Saturday, October 26th. The excuse (who really needs one?) is that I shall be celebrating the slightly ripe middle age of 50, and I’d like as many friends as possible to be there!
