Jimmy Deacon - Funeral Arrangements



It is with deep regret that we have to announce the sad news of the death of Jimmy Deacon, previously a member of Kettring BC who had numerous friends in the club and who also played for a number of other clubs in the region. Jimmy has been one of the finest players in the county across recent decades and has represented the county association as both a key member of the 'A' Team and as Secretary on the Northants Committee.


The funeral will take place on Monday 7th January at Woodford Baptist Church, Woodford Village, Northants. After the ceremony there will be a procession through the village to the Burial Ground, Church Road. 


There will then be a gathering in Woodford Village Hall. 

Every body is welcome to attend any or all of the elements if they so wish.





Kettering Bridge Club has its own impressive premises which were extended and updated a few years ago.

The club has purchased a defib which is placed upstairs near the window next to the kitchen area. Dr Robin Lee and Dr Roger Bailey recently gave short presentations to club members, on how to use the defib.  There is also a poster next to the defib, and we would urge all members to take a moment to familiarise themselves with what to do in the event of an emergency.
