Rup Bagha

It is great sadness that we have to announce the death of Rup Bagha, ex Chairman of Cosmic Fireworks and ex Chairman of the BPA on Friday 2nd November 2012 at the young age of 53.  A full appreciation will be published on the BPA website in due course.  Our thoughts are with all of Rup’s family at this sad time.
