Sadly we must report the loss of another of our members.
Ray Roberts finally lost his battle with cancer on 22nd July.
Rays funeral will be at Worthing Crematorium at 3:00 pm on the 7th of August.
Attendance is by invitation only but the funeral cortege will pass by Tarring Priory Bowls Club and the George and Dragon around 2:15 pm.
Ray Roberts son Mark has emailed me to let me know that only 30 family members can attend the service at the Crematorium on August 7th ....
but if you want to, you can attend the George and Dragon, where the service will be streamed live. As there is a limit of around 100 people at the G&D, can you email or phone me if you wish to attend. I will then let Mark know so that he can let you have an invitation to get into the G&D.
Mark hopes we have space for everyone, but doesn’t want to be surprised by having 40+ from his bowling world turning up. Invitations are necessary to get into the G&D as they are closing the pub for us alone
Please contact Alan Messer who will pass on your request to Mark if you wish to attend, it is important to the family that his friends can take part
14:15 - The drive by will be via Tarring Priory
15:00 - Service can be watched from the George and Dragon
16:15 - Wake as soon as we get there following the service and on into the night
If you wish to make a donation in Rays memory you can do so through Ian Hart Funeral Services who will pass it on to St Barnabas Hospice.
