You will be sad to know that Chris Kinloch died on 7th July. For many years Chris played regularly in Gloucestershire; he was a respected member of the county team and a good friend to many of us. We send our condolences to his wife Helen and her family. The funeral will be held at 2pm on 28th July at Andover Crematorium. As there are restrictions on the number of people who can attend in person, there will be a live stream of the service. Go to www.obitus.com. User name: Muso9290 Password: 344117. Helen asks you to log in about 5 minutes before the start of the service.
There are no Youth Bridge sessions currently scheduled.
