I hope you are all still safe and well.
Dave Howarth’s funeral details are now available: it will take place next Monday 11th May at 3.15 p.m. at Stockport Crematorium. Unfortunately, the crematorium will only take 10 mourners, places that understandably will be for his immediate family.
The family just want their own floral arrangement but donations may be sent to Guide Dogs For The Blind for those who wish to do so. Anyone who knew Dave, will remember how passionate he was about Guide Dogs, having spent lots of his own time assisting in puppy training. His Remembrance Book on the Centre’s web site will be removed on Monday and the comments sent to Sheila, so if you want to upload a message for her and the family, please do so before then.
Last Saturday night, on what would have been the Saturday evening at the 50th Celebration Rally, Freddie Fantastic, who was booked for the rally, gave a very successful virtual performance to the centre’s children via Zoom (on line video conferencing). The best comment I heard was “it was so nice to hear the kids laughing together”, so it was really great to hear that the committee’s efforts had been appreciated; well done team.
