Paul Woodcock and James Houghton at the Sands of Time Conference, October 2022.

It is with great regret that we share the sad news of the passing of our dear friend, James Houghton. It was James who, in 1967, placed an advertisement in the Redcliffe Herald asking for a public meeting for anyone interested in starting a group dedicated to the history of Redcliffe. That became the Redcliffe Historical Society, now known as History Redcliffe.

Over the years, his commitment to the Redcliffe community has been unwavering. His dedication to History Redcliffe and his friendship will be greatly missed. Vale James.
