I am sad to report that our previous chairman, Derek Hanson, passed away just before New Year.
Emin and I had visited him at his home in Billericay just a couple of weeks earlier and he was very interested to hear how the club is getting along since he resigned as chairman due to ill-health a few years ago.
I had known Derek for many years – since we had a ‘trial day’ together at the lakes where we both caught fish and joined-up as fast as we could!
The funeral will be held at 2pm on 22nd January – Emmanuel Church, 66-68 Laindon Road, Billericay CM12 9LD ; then at Bentley Crematorium CM15 9RZ, followed by a reception at Ashwell Country Club CM15 9SE.
