Graham Chilvers

Posted on 10th January 2016 by Rachael Jenkinson

It is with a very heavy heart that I share the news that our former Chairman, Graham passed away peacefully yesterday after a long illness. I know Graham was a much loved friend to many of us and his spirit and humour will be very sadly missed. Julie has asked that she is given time and space to come to terms with this loss and we will share further details on arrangements once they are in place. Our thoughts are with Julie and the rest of Graham’s family at this sad time.
