GRAHAM HALL

It is with great sadness that we have to report that Graham Hall passed away on Thursday, 2nd April in the Nursing Home where he had been for the last 6 years. This had nothing to do with the coronavirus.

Graham, an Honorary Life Vice President, was Honorary Treasurer of the County Club from 1982- 2012 and President from 2005-2007 during which times he rarely missed a match whether home or away. A true and invaluable Officer and supporter of the County.

Our sympathies go out to his wife Jean and her family. Sadly, in present circumstances a public funeral cannot be held.


DANNY WOODS

We were greatly saddened to hear of the death of Danny Woods in early March following a long battle with cancer.

Read his obituary here.

LEE DIXON'S FUNDRAISING
