Frank Ferris and Brian Roberts both long serving members of the CIBSE Heritage Group
                        considered that the 70th anniversary of The Rumford Club which they had both attended
                        on occasions, should be celebrated and marked by the production of an e-book to be
                        shown on the Group’s Website.


                       It was reasoned that the e-book should concentrate upon the Club’s august raison detre
                       by giving a pictorial selection of the people, dinners, meetings, visits, guest speakers
                       that have all contributed to the success of the Club’s 70 years in providing a forum for
                       all disciplines within the Built Environment.


                       The Heritage Group has had a long association with The Rumford Club that originates
                       with Neville Billington 1972, Paul Yunnie 2001 followed by John Barnes 2003 who all
                       served as Rumford Club Presidents. Geoff Brundrett CIBSE President in 1997 their
                       Centenary year and a long serving Member of the Heritage Group, at the Club's 300th
                       dinner anniversary was co-presenter of the resolution that "air conditioning as practiced
                       in 1993 is a menace not a benefit to mankind"
