We are very shocked and saddened to hear of the sudden death of Eugene Hutton on Wednesday 23rd January.
This is particularly poignant as he has so recently undertaken an enormous amount of invaluable work helping to get our new venue ready.
We send heartfelt condolences to his wife Avril and family.
The funeral is to be held a St Chads Church in Cheadle on Thursday 14th February at 1.15pm.
