The November edition of The History File is a tribute to David Wain OBE by David Cummings and Alf Croston. David Wain died in September this year.

I am sure you will enjoy reading about this respected member of the Christleton community whose exploits included driving his car across the frozen River Dee near the old Dee Bridge..
