Bob Lewis

We have been informed that Bob died on Saturday evening (9 July) after a short illness. A keen match angler and committeeman Bob’s contribution to the club  and support for his fellow anglers was invaluable. We would like to send our condolences to Bob’s family.

Hi, just to let you know the collection plate from dads funeral raised a fabulous £416.40 so which is to be split between the angling club & the nature reserve. The money is with Rowleys atm who will be sending the cheques a week on Monday. Massive thanks to everyone who came & donated, very much appreciated.
Thank you all
Claire, Sam & Steve
