I regret to inform Members of the recent death of Fred Spurrier.
Fred joined the Forum in 2014 when he was the ripe old age of 84. He was introduced by John Clark after meeting in the Valley Gardens where they were on manoeuvres with their model boats.
I’m afraid Fred’s career and background are not with me but, in the Forum he was always cheerful and a willing helper in setting up the kitchen with John. I also understand he was a lay preacher and, many moons ago, played the part of a young Nanki-Poo in Gilbert & Sullivan’s “The Mikado”
His funeral will be held at 2.30pm on Tuesday 5th October at the Mission Church, Starbeck
Our condolences are extended to his Family Members. R.I.P.
