It is with very great sadness that we have to report the death of our long time Committee member, Official and former Chairman Bill Woods. Bill had been feeling unwell recently and, after undergoing tests last week, his condition deteriorated rapidly and he passed away on Saturday 23rd August.
The service that Bill gave to our Club during a period of over 35 years was enormous and he has played a major role in the Club attaining its present healthy position. We are sure that all club members and Bill’s many other friends in the world of athletics, both in the North East and elsewhere in the country, will join in passing on our heartfelt sympathies to June, Gary and Karen and the rest of Bill’s family.
Bill’s funeral service is being held on Tuesday 2nd September 2014 at 11.00am at St Robert of Newminster RC Church on Oldgate in Morpeth, (postcode Ref NE61 1QF).
Private Family Burial at Graveside, and Family Flowers only by request, donations in lieu may be sent to any registered Cancer Charity.
June, Gary, Karen and all of Bill’s close Family have invited all friends to attend a celebration of his life at the Morpeth Comrades Club afterwards.
